One night…

When you look at something for long enough
you begin to see it everywhere

Still, keep looking at what you can see

One evening, out of the corner of your eye,
you may see a first star appear

When you see yourself reflected often enough
you may lose touch with what moves you

Still, be with your friends and family

One night you may walk out under the stars
and find all you love connected by vast spaces
and streaked through the sky
