A kiss makes the heart young again and wipes away the years.
Who wipes away the tears?
Your kisses so sweet, yet so far away..
You invade my dreams with no control.
For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart.
For it were not my lips you kissed, but my soul.
A gentle tear is a whisper from the heart and soul.
Imploring the mind and body to relax.
Ecstasy is a whisper from the body, it cannot be seen or measured, 
Yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment.
Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back.
Love is a force more formidable than any other.
It will offer you more joy than any material possession ever could.
Be still my love, my fingers gently touch your glistening skin.
Listen..the voice of the sea as it whispers upon the shore.
Live as though heaven is on earth.
With the touch of a lover, feel your desire.
Let go and be at peace again.
Concentrate the mind on the present moment. 
Do not dwell in the past, whisper dreams of the future,
No soul can lack happiness looking up to the midnight stars.
I suppose there were moonless nights,
With but a silver shaving and pale stars in the sky,
I remember them all as flooded with the rich whisper of a full moon.
For those who wish to shine..they will always find a star.
Like a falling star who has finally found her place 
Next to another in a lovely constellation,
Dreams are like may never touch them, 
But if you follow them they will lead you to your destiny.
No life can be barren which hears the whisper of the wind.
The most important thing in life is to learn 
How to give out love, and to let love come in.
Will our whispers sparkle in the heavens forever?

    The latter portion of the poem is scintillating. You aptly use the heavenly bodies to simulate the desires, goals of the earthly bodies. An interesting tratise on love.
