The Sun Now Sets (poem)

The sun now sets on yesterday

Tomorrow’s dream aren’t far away

Another field where lovers stray

Awaits to hear what flowers say


Each kiss became a memory

A heartbeat for our mystery

So bound we faced our destiny

With only our two arms to flee


And so we took each yesterday

Thus fashioned our own mystery

And took our place in destiny

I saw them kiss the world would say


Was it real this memory

Which hearts of lovers took away

Mid moonbeams with no place to stray

And longing lips no cause to flee


Then jealous time did come to say

All that you had for now must stray

All but our love it took away

The sun now sets on yesterday
