From time immemorial
People have been gazing at stars
Trying to seek solace
From the wonderment it inspires

I was never one of them!

Until you twinkled one day

And ever since,
My favorite thing to do is
spend my time
unraveling that mystery
Blinking in your eyes
As they shine brighter or grow a shade darker
With every tale of love and concern they weave
Whenever they talk with mine

Isn’t love so utterly inexplicable
That I can see my sky in your eyes?
And
Isn’t love so terrifyingly beautiful
That just like night and day
They change tone as your emotions rise and fall?
