Starry wishes

I sit here all alone
under a bright starry sky,
waiting for a meteor
to streak right by.

And in the twinkling darkness,
my thoughts carry me to you;
you always loved the nights
as much as I do.

I think back to the “us” times
under slivers of a sultry moon;
those moments spent together
always evaporated way too soon.

I remember sharing so much
as the hours lost their way,
never an awkward moment
as we always had so much to say.

The years have all passed by now,
but the memories are still so near;
and I think of you so often,
ever wishing you were here.

  1. This poem is laced in sentimentality. It holds a whole host of imagery to keep in the head. Very vivid, to imagine.

    Throughout it, it is dotted down with feelings of yearning. Though, near the end, there is something close to hope, as the memories of this past individual is carried forth. Still, the sadness whirls… even while keeping up with the light of this piece.

    Beautiful and relatable work. 🙂

    1. Thank you for your lovely comment; what you wrote could have almost been a poem in itself. 😉 It’s always a great feeling when someone feels a connection to what I’ve written. I’ve not been about lately and I desperately need to catch up with you and so many others. Hope your week has been going well. ❤️
