Wishing On A Star.

Gravitas
At midnight mass
For love that died.
Candles flame in unison
As shadows hide
From the past.
The choral cast
All stand in white.
A requiem
On this holy night.
But we can't be revived
Only the flowers survived
-Our infant dreams.
We stifle screams
And hold hands
Far apart.
While bells ring in in our heart.
We pray
For a new start
That will never arrive.
As swallows dive
From mountain peak
With messages
The lonely seek.
This choir
Anoints the soul.
That musical parole.
For one moment
We are free.
Both wishing on a star.
So spiritually.
To light our lamps
Of eternity.
