Jesus James Llorico

The stars above

'There was enough of stars above
A better way to start
As this desert land smells of love
That heals my lonely heart
I watched the length of shaded trees
The soul inside me sing
As branches heaved in gentle breeze
A nature's solemn thing

The moon that let her glimmer falls
On dormant birds of flight
As radiance touched the housing walls
My place of rest at night

I dream you stand beneath the trees
A beauty most so fair
Proclaim I will to those who sees
My joy that fills the air

But something missed in present bliss
This heart of mine I find
That dreary look on night like this
Has put grief in my mind

Your eyes I see a glassy bright
As gentle teardrops fell
The love we have are gone tonight
In grim distress I tell

I smiled, I waved, I dried my tears
Our love will never be
My dreams, my hopes and all the fears
Now clasped among the trees
With none to guide and strengthen me
The sorrow has began
Since you are gone in thoughts I see
Our life in glance is done.'
