THRENODY

The deep music
of your soul sings
beside me
as we walk,
like the strings
of a cello
played
in the night.
The colour
of your eyes
moves inwards
as you breathe
and I see within you
everything you have been,
richness and sorrow
in equal measure
resolving themselves
into song which washes
the streets and caresses
the buildings.
No-one notices
but me.
Walk on, my beauty,
pass by me.
There is nothing
I can offer to stand
in comparison
with the shine
that bursts
from your eyes.
