That night when I saw you
Your silvery glow guided my innocence
Your shape shepherded my dreams
I followed you.
I felt alone but
You too craved companionship
I could hear your soft whisper
Your light permeated within my heart
Fascination for you grew
But I lost interest in your beauty
Science classes revealed your truth
Life brought along new attractions.
Who knew your love could never fade?
Who knew you would continue to allure?
It was just a matter of time and age
I returned to gather some light
During my darkest moments
You beckoned me by your side
Your unconditional love offered
A healing touch, most tender
An embodiment of goddess
You thrill and fill
The lovelorn hearts
With the hope of halcyon days
Now I know your distinctive trait
Of giving without expectation
Now I know what is love
Now I can feel your presence
Even when you are away.
