Whispers from the Willow: A Conversation between Light and Shadow"

I saw you by the willow tree, where shadows waited long,

You continuously knew where to discover me, covered up within the song.

The waterway whispered insider facts, stories of days gone


I tuned in to its mumbles, where the echoes sigh.

The sun plunged the moon in blood red tints, portraying the evening sky,

And in that blurring light, I saw the questions in your eyes.

What dreams have you been chasing, through evenings so dim and cold?

I've meandered through my recollections, looking for Treasures Old

We moved around the quiet truths, in twilight's tender Fold,

And words we cleared out implicitly, started to lose their hold.

Can you review the guarantees, underneath the moon's embrace?

I felt them slip like sand, time's persistent race.

The stars over were witnesses to promises that we once made, However here we stand in hush, where the shadows played.

What future do you see for us, in paths we have to Choose?

A journey entwined, with each win and loose

In this minute by the willow, where past and show meet,

We find a truth that's whispered, within the beat of our feet.

Together, ready to shape the first light, with a cherish that won't retreat,

And type in our story over again, where heart and trust complete.
