Seated beneath a big banyan tree
The night sky is out there for me to see
Lovely dots of light across the sky
A sight so beautiful that no one can buy
It’s yours it’s mine
A unique gift to us from the divine
I gaze lovingly at the moon
Like it’s calling come to me soon
The little bright dots called stars
Are free to shine and not behind bars
I watch as the moon shifts it’s position
Growing and stunting like some division
It reminds me of my loved one
My heart says it’s only you and no one
A blinking light sometimes streaks across
Maybe a flight crossing the Albatross
Counting the stars I try to sleep
Ya this time I am not counting sheep !
Eyelids are heavy as dreams take over
Pulling me into its streams for a make over
Somewhere a voice calls….cross over…..
But when my eyes open…I know it’s all over !!
