i glimpsed a shooting star
and i thought long and hard
about what to wish upon that
falling star in the blank of
the night. but nothing came
to mind as i stood beside you
with our hearts beating in time.
and one could say that this
moment would not exist if
the star did not give out its light
a million years ago through
the blooming void and maybe
we live so many different lives
to learn that the greatest gift
is not a wish, but the marvel
