The Wind

…takes me away

Image: Public domain

In my dreams
and in the blue hours in between
we are always hand in hand
how sweet the ache

under this soft moon
fireflies glow like stars
shadows are dancing entwined
colour is drifting

there is the fragrance of blossoms
and I long to walk with you
upon these moonlit paths
but wishes are but petals of longing
drifting upon the wind

I hold my breath
as darkness falls on me
the gates of heaven open
and the wind takes me away
