You Were the Song


You Were The Song

Many lifetimes ago

You were the song

My soul longed to sing

Like strains of music

We wound together

The sky was midnight blue

With stardust and rose petals

Falling around us

Eternity all around

In a silken haze

Nights were filled

With the sweet fragrance

Of purple irises

And white orchids

All ebony and moon glow

But now

Forgotten shadows

Frequent that room

And one voice echoes

As it touches stone walls

In a dream I wake

To find myself empty

Just as an extinguished candle

Leaves the night
