Some Day We Have To Share This Sight Together

You cannot walk these roads with me tonight,
And tomorrow morning feels too far away,
And so, instead, I force my hands to write
A pale impression of the Milky Way.

Every star that can be viewed by mortal sight
Carries over Moher’s cliffs and waves
A lonely message that I hope just might
Redeem my absence over summer days.

And if a man had wings to give him flight
I’d take a leap from castle walls to say
That Heaven’s quilt of jewels holds no light
To match the diamonds in your smiling face.

I promise that this sight we’ll one day share
As an embracing, starlight-gazing pair.
