When a smile,
portrayed as guise of fire,
rusts as your presence departs…
When a caress,
lingered with twilight glow,
is but a shadow trailing
When a love, unreturned,
plays master calloused
to a fading hope…
Set a seal upon shallow heart,
you whom my soul desires,
and let me be released.
Flames softening a heart of stone
fading away each zealous stream.
A spirit dulled through nights of black
blossoms stars from a faerie dream.
A soul once dampened by frigid tears
warmed by a love now found.
Mangled wings bound by the sun
now airily flitter upon the clouds.
Drifting through the sands of time,
celestial burning suffuse the night.
The sweetness of the morning dew
caress my heart with wondrous light.
Your grace, beauty, and wisdom great
have seized my heart in awe unbound,
The earth, now below us, faint-
how sublime it is, this love we’ve found.
