⠀⠀⠀⠀At cloudless midnight, I was the one distant star
⠀⠀⠀⠀that mattered to wonder’s reflection in your eye.
⠀⠀⠀⠀Within morning’s deluge, I was the one pure raindrop
⠀⠀⠀⠀that mattered to summer’s warm smile on your lips.
⠀⠀⠀⠀Against day’s communiqués, I was the one urgent word
⠀⠀⠀⠀that mattered to poetry’s love on your tongue.
⠀⠀⠀⠀Into dusk’s escape, I was the one vivid dream
⠀⠀⠀⠀that mattered to vision’s certainty in your sleep.
