under the stars
on a tailgate
meant for two,
I look to the heavens
and wonder…
Do her eyes see
the heavenly beauty?
Does she see the
infinite sparkle?
Does she realize
she outshines
the night sky?
Does she know
she is one
in a million
and I am nothing
without her?
under the stars,
I wonder.

    1. Thanks, Sara. (Of course…soon after I posted, I thought of a different title…I’m not sure how I feel about changing a title once it’s already been posted…but in this case, I thought of “Do You See What I See?” …thoughts??)
