A Star Fell From Heaven

A birthday poem for my wife

A star fell from heaven
Into my arms last night
As we walked arm in arm
Under a cloudy moonlight
Now heavens missing an angel
Because I’m holding her tight

You came into my life
Like the first ray of the sun
And I knew right away
That you were the one
There were no need for words
Just a small simple smile

My heart fluttered
With coming of the dawn
Because like the stars
I hoped you wouldn’t be gone
I wanted you there at my side
As each day fades to into night

I wanted you here
As my lover and wife
Your not going back
I won’t let you go
I love you too much
To ever let you go

I wrote about snowflakes nourishing the apples Now you speaketh to me. Missed reading this.
Refreshing one. good to read
A Drop Fell On The Apple Tree I have enjoyed watching the rain pearls along the clothes-line for so many times when it rains....rain drops are not pearls in Emily's words..but diamonds..superb-10 (Repor
There is something particularly charming about this poem- - she gives us such unique phrases and words used in different contexts.- - - A half a dozen kissed the eaves, And made the gables laugh.- - - - - - The sunshine threw his hat away, The orchards spangles hung.
Class writing by Emily!
