Starlight Kisses - Poem by Linda Marie Van Tassell

It’s no secret how I feel about you.

After all these years, I’m still starry-eyed.

My wayward course is unsettling, true;

but my path is something I cannot hide.

I walk beside your memory, your ghost.

Each breath is a whisper upon your ear;

and when I’m lonely, I love you the most.

In those moments, you are afar but near.




I am ever a dreamer in my heart.

Time flutters on wings fluttering by.

There is no distance to keep us apart,

no river to flood like tears in my eye.

I mingle with rain on the azure wave.

My face is illumined by rays of light.

I search the depths of the watery grave

mingling with silence and dark of night.




Your tone and your laughter are clearly heard

above the bedlam of the world so pressed,

and I breathe not a sound nor single word.

I dance to the music of your voice - blessed!

I press my cheek against a falling star

and chain-link my hope to its silver fire.

I pray all is well wherever you are

and that you notice my burning desire.




I stand on the edge of a moon-lit night

blowing starlight kisses forever bright.
