Last Minute Jitters

by Jmf4119

Enchanted by celestial odysseys --
a falling star can make my wish come true.
Illuminated moonlight mysteries
impress upon my heart that I love you.
The rushing whisper of a nearby stream
can cause my mind to wonder where you are --
I seek to slip away into a dream,
to feel your touch and wish upon that star.
But if my heart is yours, and yours alone,
and beats with love that you cannot return – 
I think the stars that shine from Heaven's throne
would fall from grace and quickly, quickly burn?
With trembling feet, I shuffle off to bed –
assured that come tomorrow, we will wed.
