Star-fixed Eyes (poem)

Updated on May 28, 2012

So sure of all that what might be

A world of possibility

A haven where young hearts might flee

With star-fixed eyes they went to see

-

Their days a happy melody

Delighting in their company

They spent such moments holding tight

That wishes hid their destiny

-

Their passion masked reality

As daylight lingered into night

Another kiss another flight

Another satin memory

-

But then they paused to see the light

And questioned source of their delight

Was this the tale that they did write

Those lovers lost to mystery

-

So sure of all they had in sight

A world of everything is bright

A haven where all this is right

With star-fixed eyes a kiss goodnight

      This poem takes me back to my youth, where innocence was blissful....then one day the magic was gone. Loved the song too. Karen Carpenter had one of the most beautiful voices ever!
