I Wish You Love

Waking to the heady wisps of a mildly settling dawn-break, I understand why we are connected trading our private reflections with ease in the name of deep affinity--after all these years, your confessions, milestones have become mine as well. And we both laugh at that fateful day, a serendipitous occurrence in the theater, your handkerchief slapping my face blown by an airwave-- Beneath the patter of falling rain, a coffee for two after-- surely the rest, a history of friendship as an omen of a union washes away all the loneliness of my nights. You, a chain binding me when strength loosens its grip, And I, your designated clown in the drama of your life's courtyard. I now take leave for a long voyage far, thousand miles from this city which knows us well, desperate somewhat to be estranged from you; but that precious gaze reassures me that everything is as it should be... the only thing you'll never know, my dear, is the hidden love I carry --since we met.
