They say
Stars are flaming balls of gas
Burning a million lifetimes away,
Warming the darkness of space
With their glowing light

I say
Stars are what I see
when her lips meet mine,
Blinding me to all else
At least for a time

They say
Stars have names that matter,
That they point the way and
Help you find the way home
On a dark night

I say
Stars pale in comparison to her name,
She is my way home,
Calling to me through the storm
In my soul

They say
Stars have been here
For millions of years and
Will burn for millions more,
Until they collapse

I say
My love for her feels
Older than time itself and
Knows no bounds, it burns
Forever, beyond death
