Glimmer


Evening comes late on your shoulders
I am saddened by the news on your face
Love once again has passed you by
Your Glimmer of hope has been erased
Peace will be still
At lights first dawning
Echos of faint hellos lost in the wind
Smiles that kissed sleepy lips yawning
Faded when Glimmer chose to blend
In with the league of shadows
Forever lost to the naked eye
I will wait
Until
His eye is on the sparrow
Keeping watch
Until
I turn to dust
Still I will wait
Until
I catch a Glimmer of my one true love
Or
Time ceases to escape
