Like the lone star, scintillating quietly
Too shy of proclaiming her love to the moon
She knows that it’s her destiny
For he’s not yet ready to reciprocate her love
Wait she must patiently, till the divine moment
When his heart becomes full and whole
Luminous, glowing, enveloping her being
Making her vanish into his creamy peach light.
Like the lone star I wait
For the love in his heart to rise to his eyes
The signal that his whole being is aware
The sign that he’s become the full moon.
Like the water lily, waiting for twilight
To dream of her lover, in the melody of the silent night
Sending streams of love from her bloom
To an unknown lover, waiting beyond
Hoping to send a frisson to his heart
To wake up his dormant love, rightfully hers
Like the water lily I gaze at the dark sky
Sending my thoughts out to call upon my love
To awaken a spirit in blissful slumber
It’s time, to embark on a journey of the unknown
To discover the pleasures and perils of a feeling
That for which every human is born.
