true north

i have no intention
of lassoing the moon
nor pulling the stars
down from the sky
one by one to slide
them on your fingers

all i can give you
is my heart and promise
that i will love you
with every bit of me
until the sun burns out
and darkness reigns

even then all will hear
my poetic tap tapping
new lines dedicated to
your heart and mind
to rattle throughout
a world with no light

my soul is a lodestone
always pointing to you
for you are my true north
my destination after
another long day roaming
this lonely world of woe
