High in the treetops our nest near the sky

Our Nest

High in the treetops
our nest near the sky.
We snuggle and watch
the stars shooting by;
stars that we wish on,
stars that we name,
stars with no purpose,
we love just the same.

Twigs interwoven
with love and with care,
feathers and ribbons
from a dress that you wear.
Pieces of memories,
dreams stuffed between,
baubles and buttons,
things that we've seen:

A bracelet, a necklace
an earring or two.
Things that we've thought of,
things that we'll do.
A nest comfy, cozy
a fit just for two.
My heart's yours forever
I love you, I do.
