Starlit sky and moonlit night
I walk gently through the grass
Dew collects on my toes
A shiver running up my spine
Crickets chirp in the distance while a tree frog calls out for his mate
It is here I feel most alive.
In the woods, enveloped by darkness
The crackling fire waiting for me down the bend
I know I will find you waiting, sitting on the blanket
glass of wine in hand.
I move forward in silence listening to my heartbeat
Only a few more steps
I reach you and look into your eyes, my head leaning against your chest
Heaven isn’t an abstract place that we go to when we die
It is here, it is now, it’s this night, just you and I.
