Thinks & Inks

By @astrid_hartman

Stargazing With Her

It is a moment

I will never forget,

A moment that will live 

In my mind

As one of my favorites

 

Her childlike heart

Never ceased 

To make me smile

 

We were outside, 

Looking at the stars

When she suddenly 

Laid down on the driveway, 

Asking me to join her

 

I laid down next to her 

As she put on a song

And we lay there in silence

A silence only broken by Coldplay

 

It was such a peaceful, perfect moment

She probably doesn’t even remember it

But at a moment in time

When I felt so untethered 

After just moving, 

The stars

And her laughter

Were my anchor that night
