Our Lights (poem)

Like lights along a drifting distant shore

Our sight seemed somehow settled in our sea

Vast night near dreams of all we dared to be

Exciting fires flaming fans for more

-

Like kites that kissed the clouds of destiny

Each plight was passed with pirouettes which sore

Fair heights of heaven held here to explore

This bright bazaar became our ecstasy

-

Our passion passed our presence to control

New fashions flung far faster everyday

Each ration ripped ripe riches from our heart

-

Dawn soothed soft sighs upon a somber soul

And smoothes warm blankets where we once did play

Still lights will drift near shore while we’re apart
