Without you....

Tears flow down the watery eyes,
the remains of a storm within.
The withered leaf falls off the chestnut tree,
the winter showing no reprieve.

The sun died away in the waters,
as the sky wore a crimson hue.
Its last rays streaked across the seas,
as the might of the evening slowly grew.

The songs have died in me, and the hopes too,
never will they sing again, never will they rhyme.
The melody has gone out of those words,
like a bell that never chimes. 

The maiden of the night embraced the earthy sphere,
as the birds flew to their lofty groves.
Stars stared at me from above,
speaking in silent and hushed tones.

Dark was the night, darker still my mind,
the moon was absent, but so were you.
The stars twinkled alone in a moonless night,
alone and lost, how I hoped you were here too.
