So were you.
The crickets were fiddling
The fire was crackling
And the fireflies were stunning
But all of this was nothing compared to what was above
We weren’t looking at each other
But somehow, I could see you clearer than ever
Our gaze truly met for the first time in the stars
I felt vulnerable
It was lovely.
The universe above was a mirror
And I liked what I saw in its reflection
I was scared of how much I adored it
Every single wall I had ever put up had been obliterated
It was just you and I and the sky
Then we looked down
We looked at each other
Both a little uncertain
Your eyes were brighter than any star
That was when I knew
Life would never be the same
I had discovered something grand.
I didn’t know what was next
I didn’t understand what I was feeling
