A Night's Love


Every night I patiently await,
For a knight to be my charming mate.

I look at the moon shining bright
Cool like a shining armor knight.

Silky the rays glide,
Pelting dewdrops alongside.

Gracefully the knight walks by,
Sits on a knee and raises his head high.

Takes my hand and I sigh,
Holds my waist as we sway by.

We dance and we sway
As the nightingale sings away.

He gave me a soft peck
As the silly cloud came to check.

How gentle was his kiss,
It was something I’ll forever miss.

He caught a dewdropp fine
Slid it into my finger which made him mine.

I felt happy and light as a bubble
It ended soon as I’d already seen a trouble.

Alas! My happiness was short lived
The night only had a few moments to give

I struggled in vain and the clouds were grey
He started to leave, but I asked him to stay

He looked into my eyes n hugged me tight
And said our love lasted only this night

He left in despair back to his land
I was left crying crouched in sand

Tears roll through my eyes every night
I look up at the sky patiently awaiting my knight

I hope that my knight will return from the land of moon
Oh! My heart knows for sure this hopes going to drown soon

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
