The stars fell from

the sky.

But like ships

we did not collide

only passing each

other by.

Stars made

for wishes

I blew them

kisses every night

and hoped the next time

you saw a star

that you might think of me.

Alas, all the kisses

have now blown out

to sea.

And you and I

we are only


on a hopeless
