The sleepy sunlight fell away,
The dusk rushed to fill its void,
And cold sedation of noon's toil came--
A proud leap upon the green setting;
Revelry emerging everywhere.
Boy, within such nighttime, you,
As no other could do,
Opened your almond eyes,
Took your haughty hopes,
And pierced the thick crowd, that bridged our abyss;
Pegged all your vibrancy to mine in an upbeat,
Swam in the passion as the music expanded;
The blissful people, the stage and smoke,
A steady rock song, to which I craned,
Fell behind our tenuous hope,
It's blurry connection of life to life
Losing consistency in the recall of time and space.
Boy, yet I will remember your face.
Recklessness of which has well survived
Drunken laughter and orange sunrise,
Your almond eyes
Held me but one sottish frame,
In the vastness of life's game.
