The One I Think About

Your body placed in the sky,
The details of your face etched picture-perfect
As you wake,
The twinkle of your eyes are defined by the stars.

When the stars rise, I instantly see you
As you cry for him,
The stars cry for you
And when you're happy, the stars are too.

I look up at the stars and connect with you.
I know that this is the only way I can be with you
And thanks to the stars I know that I love her.

His heart shines up in the heavens beyond,
It is true, it is pure,
As the stars twinkle, I picture his heart controlling their minds.

I look up at the stars and hope that he is too.
They talk to me,
They tell me what he feels,
They tell me what he thinks.

When they soar, I think they are happy,
That because they represent his feelings, I know he is happy too,

I look up at the stars and connect with you.

I know that this is the only way I can be with you
And thanks to the stars I know that I love him.
