I left the world behind to be with you awhile
To feel the blue of your eyes,
The red of your lips,
and the flowing yellow of your hair.
As you sing of a young rivulet's journey to the sea,
I see you in the countless lights of the sky
Your blue eyes shining with kohl.
A cold and distant bridge looms between us;
You reign in those mighty worlds beyond my reach
Yet, I long to clasp you in an embrace and be the light of a thousand stars.
