Sacrifice

 

They come arching across night skies

With their trails of glitter

Following behind

And under breath

They whistle our love song sweet

 

They take cue

So we might dance

On their borrowed time

And dream

Of arms meant to hold us

And of hearts meant to beat

Butterflies

 

They do it all for our love

 

Delighted they grin at me

And wink in merry mischief

 

And I comprehend

In those silent gazes

While throwing wishes

The stars are in sparkle

For us they die

And happily fall from the sky

To give me a chance

Of dreams that come true

They unselfishly give their lives

All just so I can wish for you
