Night Of The August Moon

Night Of The August Moon

She loved and left all too soon
my lover from nights of the August moon
Hair so black with eyes so blue
we joined, we fell in deep love , we two

Time stood still as we demand
our hearts beat in each other's hand
Dawns birthed new days of thrills
we roamed the valleys and forested hills

Ages passed in those blissful days
hold out against life's mysterious ways
Fate sent its messenger to cast
a separation that sadly did forever last

Sun is black each day at high noon
 as I cry for my lover of The August Moon

Thank you Vera.. No, I have only desires for my loving wife.. She that soothes my heart, soul and mind. I write these poems from memory---the memories of ages gone past. My muse gives me much to ponder and write.. Some quite sad and some very happy. When I write of the past most is about the unhappy, turbulent life that I once lived.
