The Moon Child

Diana
A Rose for a Goddess

To one I knew as only a girl, the school friend whom I wanted and needed, the girlfriend with whom intimacy was but a fleeting moment, the one I thought I would marry... from whom time and space took me away.

~

When time was as a dawn

That cast the dew upon the lawn,

And em'rald hues adorned the leaf,

The days were all too brief...

For I loved you then, Diana.

~

It was a summer’s morn

That sparked that feeling to be born

Within a heart too young to stand

Against that spark’s command…

I saw only you, Diana.

~

T’was shortly after spring,

With nestlings taken to the wing,

Our eyes wide open to the sky,

And clouds just drifting by…

You were in my dreams, Diana.

~

As if the spring were night

And summer dared the morning light,

I shrugged away the common sense,

Ignored the reticence…

Held you in my thoughts, Diana.

~

And summer moved along,

And you became the distant song.

Then autumn dimmed the daylit hues,

Beclouding earthly views…

But I do recall, Diana.
