Smoke


I saw the stars fading in the smoke..
Smoke that emanated from my heart,
Or was that from my mild Cigar
Or was it a misty wintry night
I have to cross miles and see
Yesterday seems a distant memory
And so I laugh at the irony
How years have passed like a shooting star
Only a gleam of light remain in my mind
Augmenting the darkness of my night....
