As the moonbeams waver
As the moonbeams softly waver
on the tranquil waters of our love’s lake,
illuminating the shiny pebbles at the bottom
we have cast into it in the past,
each ripple they made, a nuance of our love,
which yearns once again to be taken in our cupped hands.
Let me spread before you a tapestry
woven with my unsaid words of admiration,
for you to feel and fathom the length
of these pure threads of my love and trust,
as we continue to play alternating roles in life’s script
of being the guiding light and faithful shadow.
Why should I fear those threatening dark clouds;
when i have the warmth of your love as a shield
for I know its bright and unwavering flame
will transcend trials by all storms
as we transiently abandon time and reason at bay,
our cares flung to the all receiving breeze.
What are we now, but two mere specks
so hopelessly drifting from solid ground,
seeking to settle down on love’s cozy nest
and glide through the pores of infinity’s sieves,
as we watch our blurry reflections overlap in turquoise waters
when we reach the closest of being hailed as one.
