The Shape of You (Rae’s Song Revisited)

Tiny white lights twinkle

nocturnal noises provide a rhythm

for conversation’s give and take

We wrap each other gently in words

painting a night sky canvas together

giving glimpses

of our separate worlds

universes apart


Words written

spoken from afar

something fragile grows

You become brightness in my life


awaking things long dormant

I become the roots beneath your feet

grounding you

offering you shelter


The shape of you continues

to grow within my heart
