WISHING STARS

I still search

for you in crowds,
in empty fields
and soaring clouds.


In city lights

and passing cars,
on winding roads
and wishing stars.


I wonder where

you could be now,
for years I’ve not said
your name out loud.


And longer since

I called you mine—
time has passed
for you and I.


But I have learnt

to live without,
I do not mind—
I still love you anyhow.

WISHING STARS


I still search

for you in crowds,

in empty fields

and soaring clouds.

In city lights

and passing cars,

on winding roads

and wishing stars.

I wonder where

you could be now,

for years I’ve not said

your name out loud.

And longer since

I called you mine—

time has passed

for you and I.

But I have learnt

to live without,

I do not mind—

I still love you anyhow.
