Within the Dew


O my love, why sat beyond the edge?
Away from universe, away from the hedge
Come to me with thy courage-
I keepeth for thee, starry scarf
Earring of Sun and Moon
A garment made of mystery mist
Come to me with thy courage
With thy fragrance of musk
Waiting here up to dusk
Come, Come to me, before dark
Singing like a lark
Swimming like a shark
Come to me with soughing,
With heavenly hue, coloring.
Come, I’ll wipe thy tears
Here alone, I am melting.
Wanna to be an ocean;
Within the dew.

    Wanna be ocean just by a dew
    I know because i wish it too
    As we know the pure love they do
    In droplet from above, symbolic for life being new
    A pure one, clean from any torture view...._SOul (Report) Reply
