Wonder where the stars have gone? .
Nor the nightingale ceased song? .
What became of the moonly call? .
Deep longing once consumed by a knock.
The gentle smile, my hug welcomed, at the door.
The subtle flutterings.
Two souls of palpable mutuality
Hearts in bond, devoid of want.
Worries then, by winds, were gone.
A girl, then, a boy met.
Would that she were of Angel descent.
Or that perfection, in her eyes, rests.
A boy turned man save for a stare.
Once were the time moon laid so bare.
She'd shrugg in contempt to a beauty so rare.
Aye! Days turned weeks, months to years.
Time dares lessons, heart bear regrets.
Fragile as is, flora like emotion.
Pride often set foolishness in motion.
Moments of fun now thrown to void.
Save for memories, the mind so hugs.
Would that, the moon, a glance I could steal.
Would that, your face, again I could see.
