Perseid Meteor Shower, August 12, 2008


As I sat there upon the bleachers
Alone against the unforgiving night
I rested my arms against the cold cold steel
To block the city’s light

Like apartment windows far above
The stars began to glow
I let my gaze wander east and west
I searched high and low

And then suddenly without warn
It streaked across the sky
Like someone who, with a sun-shined marble
Flicked it hard and high

I dug my hands deep and fast
Into my dirty jeans
I wasn’t sure from where it came
Or what it actually means

But of one thing I was sure
As I wished upon that star
That I would like to be with her
All places near and far

My wish was that she would be mine
In times of joy and pain
So that I could also be her shelter
Come storm or thunderous rain

So that someday at some point in time
We would be together in the night
Our arms together against the cold cold steel
Blocking the city’s light
