Last Night - Poem by Thanura Wijesiriwardena

Everyday I used to dream about
flying beside the stars above
to watch you sleep
tucked under a soft cloud
to sing you a lullaby
hoping it would reach your heart

Drenched in the moonlight
I see your sweet cuddly face
smiling like a child
with warmth comfort n grace
I wonder whether you'll hear me
as I go far and far away

Walking on the footpath
along the misty river
trying to live the past
I spent sleeping on your tears
wish I was there for you
in sleepy nights of fear

You never sang my songs
but tonight I will sing once more
no matter where life chase me to
you'll always be the star that glows
You'll always be the dream that fills my head
and I still cant find a way to let you go


(I know the night won’t last forever, But I know the moon will shine in my heart forever)
