Waiting for Shooting Stars

Waiting for Shooting Stars

By emily2u | From the Heart | 13 Oct 2021


Camped out on the beach
Staying warm in blankets;
Looking up into the skies
Black but for twinkling stars.

The crackling of campfire
Breaks the night's silence;
Smoke drives mozzies away
Keeps the chill at bay.

The crashing of waves
In the dark ocean is lulling;
Conjures scary thoughts
Hug you tighter for reassurance.

As sleep claims me
Can't keep my eyes open;
Shooting stars I've been waiting
Appear in a dream instead.
