I wish I had ever known,
why to you I am always drawn?
You brim with warmth and light,
And I fade each night.
You shine with perfection,
My sheen is just your reflection.
There in the twilight,
when you paint the sky with vermillion,
in you I see my unfulfilled dream’s manifestation.
In silent nightfall,
I never want to be everyone’s sole attention.
There as I escape their gaze,
beneath the veil of haze
I cherish memories of our reunion
in dawn , my sojourn.
