"Meet me in the stars", was said to me one night in a conversation. My desire for love and compassion just went skyrocketing with this. And dreams, always dreams of finding the right combination of companionship, communication, and love. Well, this is what came of that very beautiful phrase. I have even set this to music.

This poem originally was published in Love Poems

Meet Me In The Stars
As I am saying good night at the end of the day,
And you are not here, but many miles away,
My heart is so empty and so lonely inside,
As I wipe away a tear I am trying to hide.

I close my eyes and try to go to sleep,
But with the sadness inside I begin to weep.
Suddenly I remember what you once said to me,
Just meet me in the stars, waiting for you I will be.

When distance tends to keep us apart,
Remember I still hold you near in my heart.
When the night together, can't be ours,
Just close your eyes and meet me in the stars.

Meet me in the stars, I'll be waiting there for you.
With a bottle of wine and glasses for two.
Just close your eyes and there you will see,
Waiting in the stars, just for you I will be.

Remembering those words, I begin to smile,
And gently close my eyes, lessening the miles.
I can see the stars, oh how beautifully arranged,
But you are not there, no hug to exchange.

I sit alone waiting, with hope in my heart,
No longer wanting to be kept apart.
Suddenly in the distance, a shadow appears,
A tear rolls down my face and the image is clear.

There is no question it is you that I see,
Waiting in the stars, just like you promised to me.
You hold out your hand as you become near,
And put it in mine saying, "I miss you, my dear. "

Suddenly there's gentle music, filled with romance,
You gently pull me close, we begin to dance.
Just meet me in the stars, that is where I will be.
A special place in the stars just for you and for me.

    This poem is really good. I am a poet myself and feel poems, especially ones that are posted online for all to see, should be from the heart. I can tell this is and I can relate which is something I look for as a reader. The author did a very good job.

    My husband is doing time in prison. Every letter he sends has the "Serenity Prayer" included. Every night when he calls to say good night, he tells me to look at the stars and he'll see me there. His birthday is coming up and since I cannot send gifts, I named a star for him with the Star Registry. I was looking for a poem to send with it to make it a very special birthday for him. I couldn't have found a more perfect poem. Thank you for sharing this with us. By the way, I named his star "serenity granted"
  • Marge
    This is an amazing poem. It is defiently how my girlfriend and I are feeling. We wish to meet each other in the stars every night.

    My g/f for 4 yrs harshly ended our relationship less than a week ago. We were high school sweethearts and I fear that our plans for a long distance relationship did not work out. What really hurts is the fact that I can't see a spark of warmth in her heart for me. But as a gift I had a star named after her. haven't given her the certificate yet. Perhaps I'll recite this when I present it to her. Good stuff~ It is soooo beautiful. I hope she understands how much I love her.
  • Suzanne

  • Taylor
    I love this poem. No matter what kind of mood I'm in everytime i read it I cry. It is souch a great poem. I gave it to my poem when he went away to camp for 2 weeks and when he came back he and I were so much more closer. He isn't really the type for poems, but it's setting in a little game by his bed. Everytime I go over there he usually resites a part of it. It's soo beautiful. Thank you for writing it.

    I am usually not an immense fan of poetry with a rhyme scheme but there is something about this poem that was truly soothing. I love how you incorporated the stars into this piece. Stars are one of the many beautiful things Mother Nature blessed us with, and the love you share with this person is a glorious natural beauty as well. Keep up the good work.
