Shooting Star

Hand in Hand,
We gaze up at the sky.

Arm and Arm,
We stand there motionless.

Grin and Grin,
We chuckle at jokes.

Eye and Eye,
We watch the stars fly.

Ear and Ear,
We listen to one another’s wishes.

His hand,
My hand,
The sky.

His arm,
My arm,

His grin,
My grin,

His eye,
My eye,
Stars fly.

His ear,
My ear,

Time may fly…
Years go by.
You and I
We’ll stay nigh.

I’ll be here for you.
You’ll be there for me.
We will be together one day.
You will see.

You are my shooting star.
Then. Now. Forever.

Nicely done, Maria! Often in writing the principle "less is best" holds true. This poem clearly reflects that. Good economy of words and nice flow.
