It's hard, you know? 

she says

 

meaning,  it seems impossible

because it is almost  impossible  

 

Yet she wants to believe

and he wants that too 

 

eyes, that search the sky for a star that matches their own 

hands, that reach out for a matching set of fingers

two sets of shoulders  

 

It's hard

she says again

 

doesn't use the word miracle

doesn't use the other word either
