my star

the cloud cover is heavy
this cold october morning
low hanging gray
draped just overhead

my skin is smooth
from a night against yours
i can feel you on me
sense you through each inhale

and i’ll carry you with me
all day, into the night
all my life, into eternity

you’ll be the sun
breaking through the clouds
my light in a world of gray

shine for me, beautiful one
my star, my love

every sunrise the sun is slowly climbing the eastern horizon, spreading its golden light over the autumn leaves
