For You

My first poem for Shikha.

Like a blink in the eye
Like a lone wolf’s cry
Like the hush of the night
Like an old buzzard’s sight

If I could travel in time’s own flight
I will hold you near and be your knight
But you’re like the glare of a star
You’re like a dream too far

And If I could live forever
And make my dreams come true
My memory of love will be of you

Like a bird that flies
In the mighty blue skies
Like a leaf on a tree
In a valley so free
Like the mountains that touch the sky
Like an eagle that soars on high

And if I could live forever
And make my dreams come true
My memory of love will be of you
And all my life just for you.
