Staring silently at the sky
The light gleaming in my eye
Celestial bodies effervescent
Telling me you are heaven sent.
Beady pearls on this dark night
Orion holds me, keeps my sight
And I look on and I enthuse
That I have found another muse.
Your face need never be next to mine,
Our clocks need never tell the same time
If I be so bold I must be braver:
I ask of you just this one favour:
Tonight, wherever it is you are,
Whatever time or however far,
Look up towards the sky when dark
And see Orion and feel my heart.
