Star Wars and my Wife........

By the time that the moon had
risen and the constellations came around
We had laid back in our lounge chairs a fire
snapped softly on the ground

The wine flowing....... just my love and I
such is the nature of a brand new love
We sat talking softly..... planning , dreaming.....
all the while watching the skies above

Allright maybe I had had a couple of
beers and even a couple more
But it was then that the sky began moving
Of that I'm reasonably sure

The Leonids were in full bloom ........
except for which......... we didn't know
We watched the stars flying past until
the morning began to show

I wish we could go back now ... to that same night
and relive the same promise of love
Sitting there beneath the stars in our
same little world .....the same stars flying above


For my wife Susan.........Hmmm. I wonder how long before she reads this?........

I love this one and your poems are so powerful and we always have a glimpse of the person who wrote these beautiful words.

I wish you well and have a great day.

Take care

Jami , Thank you , Why are there so precious few of these hours, for us all? I believe all the beauty of the world is appreciated differently when we are either alone of with someone beside us . I'm glad you enjoyed this.....:-}
