Castle in the Sky

The birds follow the distant tune of your song
And when I exclaim your name the stars as if lamps
Bring light to the avenues of the sky

On this solemn night I speak every word and phrase
“Your eyes are diamonds”, “I want you as the earth longs for April”
But love never crosses the threshold of my lips

Love belongs to the soul yet I am alone when you are not in my arms.
The night is dark and solemn; the magician has hidden all the light
The stars fall into deep slumber, the sun no longer let’s the moon
Continue her fraud

I am dressed in your embraces, satiated by your sonnets
And I wait on a bed of sand

The night grows antsy and flees on a boat of violets
Light breaks through the pines as a rabble of butterflies
Rising me to her Castle in the Sky
