Counting stars

Folder: 
the missing

lost in the darkness of your missing 

I watch the stars wink as if it's all ok 

endless seconds drawl by

lethargic, spiritless 

a complete antithesis to my eager waiting 

the door does not herald your lively eyes 

that hand does not warmly reach for me 

that warmth does not envelop me 

 

the soul that sustains me 

calls my eyes up to the heavens 

a genltle reminder that you are waiting 

I wait the endless seconds in passed time 

thankful at least, there are enough stars 

Author's Notes/Comments:

Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS
