Hope (Takes Flight)

The sea drifts unseeingly

Beneath the celestial canopy

Shadows are fluttering

Endlessly fluttering

Marking time with my heart

Memories blossom

Under this moon we share

Stirring my listless soul

Rekindling the flame

Yet still the darkness holds

This night

With it bejewelled curtains

Is vast

And all the places we have walked

Are in its wake

Hope takes flight

Like doves on waves of light

Or tiny flowers

Against all odds

Bursting through the ice
