poem challenge: Appreciation

Stars

The air smells sweet 
the air cool
The grass so full of life
So full of life
It all makes you feel small
but also like the world is made just for you
You whisper secrets
the trees whistle secrets of their own
and now you know them too
and you wait for the stars to come out
you look at the sky
and close your eyes
and you wait for the stars to come out
and they come out
and although logic says otherwise 
you know they are just for you
just for you
and they gleam in the sky
like happy tears
leaking out of eyes
unseen
but understood
and you whisper secrets
and the stars sing them back
and others might not look at the stars
that is okay
just please don't take my stars away
