Glittering are my tears
in the moonlight.
They fall wordlessly to the
mossy ground beneath our feet.
With the alchemy of love’s magic
my tears transform into tiny flowers.
You bend to collect them in your strong hands.
You place them gently in my hair,
affixing them like a circlet around my head.
You adorn me with the gift of our love.
Your hands in mine,
Our fingers entwined.
Our hearts being bent like the willow in the wind.
I can’t bear your leaving,
my chest won’t stop heaving.
With tender, sweet kisses you plant upon me,
you whisper to me your promise:
I will always be near you.
Until my physical return,
You will find me
in the gentle breeze that caresses your face
in the sun’s glow that warms your flesh
in the birdsong that serenades you
in the butterfly that alights on the flower
in the fragrance of the flower that pleases you.
I’m watching over you forevermore.
You only have to look for me, and you will find me
