I won't say it today*

Dusk. I won't paint you another sunset,
another beautiful striped sea; no, not today.
~ Mia Barrat

I won't say that you should sit beside me
Looking at the dusk falling before us
No, not today, for today I have found myself
Right there in your eyes, as you looked at me,
And I at the overwhelming sky,

The railroad had sung beside us
Taking us away from us to the far
Where twilight sings not of separation
But of the communion of our souls,

I won't say that you should sit beside me
Looking at the dusk falling before us,
No, not today, for today I have found myself
Right there upon your face, as you shone
And I as that found in reflection.

Today, I will just look at you
And the passionate sky
Turned so beautiful,

Today , I will go beyond mere exchanges of words
Between you and me,
Today I will transcend our so called love,
Today,
I will be your sky,
And you the Calm of a dusk
Enveloping me.
