Stargazing by Morgan Locklear

You are an echo I thought I’d never hear

You are the truth that can simply appear

You hold my favor in a passionate grin

Like a droplet of water it melts on my skin

*

I don’t mean to stare

so much that I go blind

It’s just sometimes I dare

to occupy my mind

With all the things you are

and all the things you’ve been

It’s like staring at a star

and I’m doing it again

*

You have a melody the whole world wants to sing

My life is filled up with the happiness you bring

I was just wandering with no hope or direction

You gave my life back with effortless affection

*

Revolving with the words and poetry within

Twirling into music and an unexpected spin

Then stopping for a moment to let me catch my breath

And starting up again so fast it frightens me to death

*

I don’t mean to stare

so much that I go blind

It’s just sometimes I dare

to occupy my mind

With all the things you are

and all the things you’ve been

It’s like staring at a star

and I’m doing it again

  1. Love the poem! A couple people came to mind as I read it. Your poem flows like a verse and chorus of a song. I wish you & Jenn the best with your new blog!
