Meteor

"Yes" she answered him.
" I don't ever hang around too long.
I am a stream of meteors flashing
through the skies. If you are observant
you'll spy me as I pass by. But only
the early riser will catch my glow
and you will know it's me as I rain down
on you a storm packed with fifteen hundred
meteors that light up your desert sky.
Then and only then, when everyone else
is sound asleep, deep within their dreams,
I will captured your heart and take you in flight
across the constellation Andromeda.
It is then you will discover where I go and why.
So rest assure when I close a door, I open a galaxy."
