I Love Ngoc Lan

Like a Star

I came upon you
so suddenly, as if…
in a dream

Like a star
you had shone
so brightly, as if,
in the night,
my wish had come true..

I held your hand tightly
because,
though the night was young,
the star could
vanish
in the vast skies…

In a moment
this light of my world,
love of my life
was out of reach.

You left behind
a world of desolation,
loneliness,
and despair,
unconcerned over my loss
the star flew away
to parts unknown…

My love unfulfilled
My story unfinished
My life is forever
spent
longing for you…

  1. Beautiful. It compliments the “longing” theme. Thanks so much Julia! You’re fantastic.
