Poetry: Starlight Shimmers

To Eve and her boyfriend, with many thanks

Two years is a long time to be apart

From the very bottom of my heart

Thank you both for a very lovely Eve-ning

Underneath starlight shimmers bringing

Warm gravy, cold beer and hot corn chips

And family stories and just everything you say I feel like it hits

Home and the ground shakes my heart straight up breaks

With the feeling of your hand in mine it was an honour and it takes

Real courage and trust to feel so deeply and love with such compassion

I know forever she is your Queen for she spoke of her love for you with such passion

Eve, you shine ever so brightly…imagine when we get up to 60% electricity. I imagine we may be blinded by the lights.
