Like stars in somber nights

The first time they met
He came home with the widest smile
And with a throbbing heart
Beating so hard,
It reverberated outside his body
Filling the room with sound,
I felt his ardent affection for her
And from then on I knew she was special.

I could see her in everything he does,
I see her in his eyes,
Like stars in somber nights.
I see her in his mouth,
He spoke of her,
As if magic was coming out of his lips,

They kept each other’s hearts
Like engine gears,
Or chess pieces
One couldn’t function
Without the other.

And so I hope,
I hope that when the time comes
And the seas will separate you
And the miles will try to break you apart
That you will remember
How good it felt
When you held on to each other,
How nothing really mattered,
As long as both of you
Were together

Like chess pieces,
And engine gears.

This is dedicated to my great friend Prince and to his Abby. Happy Monthsary you guys!
