When Everything Changed

Her freckles shined in the lavender sky.

He took her hand and looked deep in her auburn eyes.

So gentle and so kind. 

She finally understood what they meant when they talked about butterflies. 

So quickly how everything changed.

So beautifully that smile formed on his face,

As they sat in his little car by the lake. 

Parked car conversations, talking about things they adore.

Her head on his chest.

The stars filled the sky once more.

And the rest of the world disappeared.
