Memory's double life

Some night long ago, among the glistening stars & the swaying trees,

Sat two lovers full of woe; form the news they were about to receive!

Their eyes were violent through the darkness of the midnight gloom.

Their mouths were silent from which they brought the message of doom!

I know not of what they spoke; nor do I know of how their anger spread.

But through their torment and hostile pain; I see the love that they both shared!

This couple frozen in love & regret; let memory be their greatest pain;

For in the destiny of which they set, let memory be their greatest gain!
