A Moon Lit Night


Walking in an open field with nothing but the moon to light the night,
They walk with no path intended,
Just where their love shall take them;
The girl will giggle just as the guy will smile,
For they are full of joy to have one another's presence.

In the distance,
They spot a leafless tree with branches that spread out over the ground,
As they become closer,
The tree becomes filled with beauty,
It is a perfect piece to their calm moon lit night.

Now under the tree,
The boy takes the girls hand and drops to a knee,
And gazing into her eyes he can't help but smile,
His stomach is filled with butterflies while his heart races back and forth,
Finally he takes a deep breath and says,
"You are the one thing in my life I am proud of,
Without you I see no reasoning for my existence,
Through all the things we've been through,
I have stayed both faithful and strong,
And now I ask,
With your hand in mine,
Will you marry me this breath taking night? "

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
