Abstractions
Think of me when you think of the stars
    Remember our night walks beneath the evergreens
    Remember our starlight drives
    Remember the blanket of night covering us
        while we lay curled in lovers' dreams

The night sky glistens and I remember your eyes
    On the crowded dance floor
    Above a candlelit table
    Above a black shift
        while soft music from the stereo drifts
        through my open bedroom door

Think of me often
    And let's walk together still
    Through the night-drenched forests
    Through chattering city streets
        as we forever have and forever will

Though thousands of miles stretch between us
    we can still lay curled in lovers' dreams
