Moonlight Sonata

entry picture


She had moonlight in her eyes

Starlight in her hair

Her smile became the sunrise

That burned away despair


She took me to the clouds

Weaved rainbows from the grey

And showed me all the colours

That life had on display


And under starry skies

Where galaxies unfold dreams

We ran into the cosmos

To find its hidden seams 


But I lost you to the stars

Somewhere in time and space

Whilst I crashed back to Earth

Grasping memories of your face


I often catch a glimpse

Through cracks & fading light

Of your reassuring smile

Making sure that I'm alright


And in the milky twilight 

Where present & past collide

I'll find you once again, my love

And in our dreams we'll hide

Lovely to read while listening to this moving piece of music. It seems to almost introduce movement into the words.

A poem of fantasy and delight, very well composed as it immediately draws the reader into the scene. It certainly had me racing through the cosmos.

Thanks for this
