Breathing in Stars

It happens when,
We breathe in the night.
It happens when
We breathe in the darkness,

We breathe in the stars.

Because believe it or not,
I still remember when you told me
That the stars were beautiful
And I thought it was strange how foreign,
Yet at ease,
The word “beautiful” sounded
Coming from your lips.

It makes a difference
When you aren’t alone in noticing beauty.
It makes a difference
tonight, when I breathe in the
the stars,
that I know you still think they are beautiful.

After awhile,
The word together
Holds a different meaning.

And you and I,
Together –

We breathe in each other.
We breathe in the stars.

This is a sweet delicate love poem, I can almost imagine the stars, and the lovers' eyes glowing in the night, words spoken and knowing deeper some that are not spoken with a mutual love and understanding that the stars have, wonderful.:) please read and comment on some of my poems if you please:)
