Under Starlight - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I've been waiting,
For this moment
Just to say this...
Every wish I have had,
Has come true!
And it gives me such a 'lift'
You see that too!

I've been searching,
For a reason
To surrender...
All the heartache I felt,
That left me blue.
And I now stand in this starlight,
Here with you!

It is possible...
The incredible
Can one day be received.
It's so joyful,
Knowing life can be this wonderful,
For me!

I'm floating in this breeze!

I've been waiting,
For this moment
Just to say this...
Every wish I have had,
Has come true!
And it gives me such a 'lift'
You see that too!

Yes, it's possible...
The incredible
Can one day be received.
It's so joyful,
Knowing life can be this wonderful,
For me!

Under starlight I can beam!

I've been searching,
For a reason
To surrender...
All the heartache I felt,
That left me blue.
And I now stand in this starlight,
Here with you!

And I'm so glad it's with you,
I share this view!
Standing under starlight...
Me and you!
