Music Of That Night (poem)

Returning to the music of that night

When everything imagined seemed so right

The hopes and dreams of lovers holding tight

Where etched in schemes which stardust held in sight


The band played on their timeless melody

As every heart could feel what love could be

A moment set for all of destiny

A wave of Joy across the moonlit sea


Such magic ruled each single breath that night

When holding close was all that there could be

For worlds can wait to meet their destiny

For here there are more precious realms in sight


But time and age had their own melody

Which rained down on a couple once so right

Loose shadows promised troubles holding tight

Which darkened sands along true lovers’ sea


To meet the wind which tries and toys with sight

One memory replays to hold them tight

When everything imagined is not right

Returning to the music of that night

So much happens in a time, the music adds that much more to it. Sweet.

Nicely done, Martin.

The sound of the music takes one back in time.

It seems so right---that which was so long ago.
