Amongst the Stars 

by Marianne Scarfe

On a cold November night
We watch the stars together
Your little hand in mine...
Watch stars of shining spray in a endless sea...
Watch darkness pin-pricked with silver light...
Watch glitter sprinkled from a velvet sky, 
A thousand petals falling from an ancient tree. 

And I ask you  
What are you thinking? 
And you answer, 
I'm thinking that there's 
Someone up there
And He's looking back 
Especially at me.
