It’s a Great Big Universe

YOU

You catch the night when it falls
And send my days tripping
Over daisies, across meadows
When the ocean waves, you smile
And send the moon packing
You’ve got this
So why the smile
When you
See me?
I’m waiting for the punchline,
Knock me out, but you don’t
Stars imitate the twinkle in your eyes
And, oh, the sun,
The jealous sun
Simmers and boils and wishes
He were half as cool
So why the smile when
You
See
Me?
Why take
My hand
When mountains reach out for you
And forests yearn for your touch
How can you waste such a smile
On me?
