Once I saw a yellow sky

Reflected back in two blue eyes

And colors be as colors may

But green was the most gorgeous way

To find a love that glowed soft pink

And soar with birds on gilded wings

Until I came to land nearby

A sea of stars

A hand in mine

And walking over weathered stone

A wave called out in gentle foam

That lovers be as lovers may

With soft caress and child's play

To lift from shoulders heavy weights

That fracture into smaller shapes

To skip on water like pebbles thrown

With older souls and higher hopes

And lovers be as lovers may

For who am I to challenge Fate

Who casts her spell with stories old

To summon forth winds plated gold

That spread their satin feathers out

And fall like sands of time but spout

At last to rest in love's embrace

A careful kiss on one's sweet face

Where once I saw a yellow sky

Reflected back in two blue eyes

That blinked in soft and quiet faith

For lovers be as lovers may
