For you

when coppertips* bloom
on a dark autumn night
a star falls to earth
murmuring of light

along the rooftops
and the shadows of the trees 
a half-forgotten song
blows gently in the breeze

tell me of the dreams
that tear your deep sleep
tell me of the tears
you seldom get to weep

and when coppertips bloom
on another moonless day
I'll be there in a whisper
to kiss the hurt away

*a tiny orange flower that blooms from late summer to autumn, also called falling star

  1. So beautiful. The imagery is so vivid that I find myself watching it like a movie. And so moved by the sentiment.

    "tell me of the dreams
    that tear your deep sleep
    tell me of the tears
    you seldom get to weep"
