As far as I can.

Tonight,
I give you all the stars
in my black sky.

Each twinkling light,
a little eye,
wondering a while on you and I.

I can hold them in my hand
perched between finger and thumb.

I could pluck.

But you, being who you are,
bid me leave them where they are
happy.

You have all my stars
My sky: no longer black.

    This one…just makes me happy. I really like your style–it’s simple, but says a lot with what little words you use. ^_^

    Thank you.
    That is, indeed, very much what I strive for.
    Much appreciation.
