Worlds Away


The frangipani blossoms round my neck
give off their heady scent.
The heavy laden tropic air
above the calmed surface plays,
ruffling the water's blues and greens
and makes me think of your green eyes
like oceans' deep.
With gentle hands beneath the surface,
you've patiently smoothed storms.

Dark skies, the playful blinks of stars,
Orion's belt a reassuring sign that earth is round.
You see it too, when you look up,
though too much light obscures our love.
The brightly shining planet in its orbit rides -
you are my star, my savior, and my knight.
And even ‘cross the universe I look for you
and bide my time until the day we meet again
to share our love.
