Our love is like the stars,
brighter than the dark
and impossible to count or contain.
Scattered across the nights sky,
our love tells a journey
and we can follow it across
the gorgeous canvas that is the sky.
That bright star to the right,
the one that is tinted with gold,
that is when we first met
and saw our light reflected
in someone else.
That star, above that one?
The one that burns like a pink diamond?
That is when you told me you loved me
and I told you the same in return.
Not too far away from that star,
another burns with a soft green light.
That is when our separate homes
became one and we began a new part
of our journey across the sky.
We have decorated purple velvet-ness of the sky
with thousands of stars,
each one of them a memory or an emotion.
There is one star the burns brighter
than all the rest put together.
It is the star that sits in the centre of the sky,
with all the other stars and constellations
dancing around it, moving with subtle grace and beauty.
It shines with not just one colour,
but every colour imaginable.
It is the star when we both
gave our hearts to each other,
when we created magic together by saying I do,
and started a new part of our journey.
That star was waiting for so long,
floating patiently in the sky and hoping,
waiting, longing, yearning
to be lit from within.
We have found the stars together
and that is only found once in a lifetime.
How lucky I am to have found the stars with you.
I can’t wait to see what other stars
we will create
as we dance
