I watched the falling stars this night

A Ghazal, inspired by Manpreet

I watched the falling stars this night,

Just like your eyes caught in the light.

 

Moonset sent dark diamonds falling,

For you a bright thought in the light.

 

Alone, the moonless night seemed dark,

You turned, your gaze brought in the light.

 

My words fell silent as the moonlight,

An echo they sought in the light.

 

Push back the dawn, keep the night peace,

Our silent wars fought in the light.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
