Star Burns

Written by: Patrick Cornwall

The fire reflects off your eyes as the day winds down

I withdraw into them

Those stars glance down at us and I wonder do we shine back to them

Do they think of us with wonder and hope

I wish I may and wish I might

The angry stars always remember

But with hope one star burns and gathers us

I see you dance with the wind

Feet not touching the ground as you glide to me

Will I dance with you and the wind

Your lips gather me and embrace

We dance to the rhythmic beat of our hearts and the wind

Wishing it will never end I snatch one last furtive remembrance

And your eyes take me in from the cold night air
