With a bleeding sky slowly spilling

The last dregs of light and life for the day

To my left

And a pale moon, bright against a purple sky

Shining brilliant with its reflective glory

To my right

My eyes and heart stare straight ahead

For there lies the road that leads me home to you

If I could sit for a thousand years

And gaze at nothing but the beauty of the wind swept sky

– Its particles of dust and light triggering burst of chemical flashes of beauty in my brain –

It wouldn’t satisfy me like your nearness does

Or calm for one instant the yearning in my heart for you
