 Romantic Notions By Ivy Rose

To Count The Stars

How many ways
can I count the stars
that sparkle in your eyes?
How many times
can your kiss bring
the galaxy into my heart?

I search the velvet skies
for a glimpse
of your version of Heaven.
The stars light the way
to the arms that I long
to have wrapped around me.

I stand in the shadow
of a Lover's Moon
and reach for the eternity
in your gentle smile.
The planets orbit our heads
like the crown of a King's glory.

How many songs
will the firmament sing before
your hand is placed in mine?
How many years
can be bought and sold with
the shimmer of love's joyous tears?
