Now ~ Cheron L'Estrange

Laughing down the street
it's already early and we're late
but I don't want to let you go
you point to the sky,
say you've never seen a shooting star
and I smile at you
-every star in my sky,
reach into the heavens and touch your cheek
Don't promise me 'forever'
I've heard that said too often
-but I hope that now never ends

  1. Such a wonderful poem, Charon! I love smiling with every star in your sky. I am really Manicddaily at Wordpress. K.

  2. I can see the two young people "laughing down the street". Your poem takes me back to those days, when shooting stars could be found in one another's eyes.

  3. The opening two lines are my favorites; great flow.
