Cherished Moon

06 Mar

You were my dream
you were my sigh
you were my falling
midnight sky

I never saw a sunspot
but loved an autumn moon
my heart forever broken
by remembering our tune

once we held each other tightly
your scent rubbed off on me
our lips, interlocking
uniting silently

you were my dream
you were my sigh,
a lunatic’s gleam
in this wanderer’s eye
But now the dream,
a baying howl
trapped in the moon’s
sad cherished tune
