I reach out for you in what has become the dawn -
The tireless night has surrendered
To the reality of civil twilight.
My heart today, I’ll leave behind
I’ve given you my all
What I couldn’t afford to give
The essence of my soul
Liquidated for your leisure
I didn’t look both ways before crossing
Into what proved to be the intersection of my life.
The traffic racing by only served to blur my vision of you from across the street.
Passers by were the recollections of your countenance
Like a river, our love once was;
The banks of which surrendered to the flow
In Love’s light, I find myself.
