Moonlight and Mourning

The path of light forever shines
In the dreams of a distant tomorrow
Where a kiss erases those lines
Etched with hopelessness and sorrow
Wondrous, the early morning sky
As Venus gleams steadily above
And the hands of time wave goodbye
When I surrender myself to love
Yet, I float amidst a dream
To watch you grieve at my side
Your tears in a moonlit stream
Had drowned me at high tide
The water carried me away
To a reflection of the heavens above
And right there on display
You had surrendered yourself to love
