Fireflies

The grass lit up as a group fireflies began to poke through,

and we chased them, wholeheartedly knowing that tomorrow they’d be gone.

But never knowing, you’d be gone too.

The sky lit up with a thousand stars,

and cars on the road sounded like moving waves when we closed our eyes,

and I opened mine and found you were gone.

I’ll keep chasing those fireflies and pray they lead me to you,

and I’ll keep closing my eyes and believe none of this is true.

I’ll keep loving you through and through,

and wait for the day to see your warming eyes.
