Sky full of stars

'Twas pain that taught my heart to bleed 
for sorrows of another...
then kept my deepest heartfelt needs
in silence to serve a buffer

For in the cutting vein of love
I saw a darkness unto death
with eyes of a child had seen enough
true love must stand the test

Such is the pain too grievous to mourn
speaking secrets craved by the heart
to give another the power with which 
to tear your soul apart

I've known the anguish of abandonment
and fled inflictions sting
I have faced the tyrants cruel mismanagement 
yet held my soul with wings

Of all the wisdom borne by age
no greater truth can be gave
the soul is filled in the passing of days
In the gaze of passions eyes and a lovers display

So brash can be those memories scorned
but fade they will like pages torn
Tis a hand un-held, a tear un-brushed
hearts crushed when the unspoken's not enough

Let slip not away the music-less dance
the kisses that tremor ones breath
miss not the chance for that touch of romance
what weight hath love unexpressed?

No, it's not the passing wounds
those flukes which plague ones journey
that leave devout all faith renounced
and deem sweet love unworthy

Perhaps the greatest fear is that
O're years in friendships tit for tat
passed will be what faith once lacked
and find such love not looking back

In the blink of an eye the magic could subside
to pang with hunger for the love of your life
to know from hurt you cannot hide
to trust is more than you realize

So if I've tested the depths of devotion
what storms your sails could bear
'twas solely because my love is only
of any value unless it is shared

Planned were not the trials endured
yet it's what it took for my heart to ensure
that love will bravely stand the test of time
stronger than chance, more made by design

And so to you I give in kind
holding out for the dreams, in my heart, in my mind
to trust at some blessed point will find
That breathless kiss will dance on the lips
which linger between yours and mine.

A love outlasting infinity
stumbling into guarded arms
the simplest picture of serendipity 
by a childish wish on a sky full of stars

Like watching a waltz - twisting and turning to some sort of holy sound - round and round, up and down - never wondering when or if the music will ever stop...
