I Only Ask That You Look Up To The Stars

I don’t remember the beginning
I wouldn’t want to
But somewhere in my soul
I see the birth

I know you don’t believe
but there is magic in the stars
Somewhere up there
hidden in space
is the glimmering skin
that we once left behind

I know you don’t believe
and you wonder how I can remain
with faith
while everything
around us
is crumbling

I admit
magic is hard to believe in
Why can’t love be enough
to fix those wounds
I love you with my soul
and yet
you still suffer

I curse the heavens
and I reject the blessed,
and yet
somehow
I still cannot let them go

I speak to them on the bathroom floor
and I beg them outside of your hospital room
and I wait for them
to use my miracle
to fix you

And maybe it won’t work
and maybe your equation won’t be solved
and perhaps I will fail you
and I suppose that will kill me

But I have felt their arms
around my body, tight
And I have heard their songs
And I have seen the glimmer

And I refuse
to believe
that this is the only life I will see you in;
that this love
will not span
forever
I simply refuse
and therefor
I have faith

I do not know where we come from
or if we even come from at all
I will never claim a God
or a Being
But I will forever believe
in the power of love
Because
Somewhere up there
hidden in space
is the glimmering skin
that we once left behind

I do not ask you
to believe in words
you cannot grasp
Or to trust
in something
that has failed you

I only ask that you look up to the stars
and at the very least
let their glow fall upon you
while you rest that rushing heart
and know that you
are loved
