  It will happen on a night like this When the stars dangle precariously from strings Into a black ether. When an unobstructed moon Slowly wanes across a star-filled sky; On that night I will whisper “Be careful of the stars” And my words will follow you as you travel. (No matter where you are)

I. He holds a gentle yet firm grasp Of the soul. He teaches you how to grow Up, and get old.   He teaches you how to work… How to love… How to do what is right; Simply by the way he lives his life.   He is a shelter from the storm, And your blanket during the winter cold.

I set aside a season for my love And a garden to remember her by; So that upon the chime of the new moon My dear love would arrive.   Oh, where has the time gone, Since last she did pass? I have been lost for so long, And so long, lost in the past -   Leaving me wounded from the years Of a time lived without her love My war–torn ...
