shooting stars

I barely knew you
but it felt as if
we had known each other
for a lifetime.
you smelt
and felt

you didn’t think it was strange
when I wanted to stare at the clouds,
you joined in too.
you didn’t question me
when I wanted to watch the stars,
you laid down next to me.

shooting stars
and satellites,
the fire began to fade
and the morning crispness
became more apparent.

laying head to toe,
our bodies naturally inched closer
searching for warmth.
your arm on my legs
and mine on yours.
we laid there
under the blanket of the universe
where we stayed until sunrise.

we shared conversations about life,
deep and meaningful
and in silence,
taking it all in.
you didn’t question me,
nor did I, you.
so grateful
to be in this moment,
right now.

staring at the sky
which was now hues of pinks,
purples and blues
as the stars began to fade,
I looked towards the ocean
and the sun was visible across the island
sweet serenity.
time is passing
too fast.
a Bald Eagle flies over-top,
I never imagined
I’d be laying on the beach
under the stars
watching the sunrise
all of this time later,
yet I couldn’t imagine it
any other way.
