Tonight

Tonight,
The stars—
They will shine.
I will arrange them
To curve your name
On the dark skies. Tonight,
The fireflies
Will dance in the wind,
Spreading their brilliance.
I will blow them
Into a heart shape.
Tonight,
The birds will not sing
But I will.
Your name
I will call
And hold wonder in a cup
Drinking to the memory
Of you and I.
