Stolen Moments

You and I sat on the back steps

and we pondered the stars and life;

whispering into each other’s ear

amazement, wonder

and question after question.

We had no answers but we held each other

and we counted the shadows

that the stars pulled out of the night

and the hundred other places and things

that hid their secrets from us.

And we laughed.
