This moon

This night

With all its sighs and murmurs

It fills me with such longing

The rain seems ceaseless

And the heavens

Echo with the cries

Of mournful ghosts

Haunted by dreams

And the endless shadows

I remember the words

Of a prayer

I had thought lost

So long ago

And it reminds me

Of hope

Fragile, yet enduring

And your spirit

Flows over me

Like the fragrance

Of flowers

Drawing memories


And bright

From the depths

Of my despair
