Sunshine to Stardust


was when…..

she forgot her kith and  kin

she forgot all she believed in

all she remembered was impossible love

her need to make him see the heavens above. 


her time , her life, her duties, her promises

her responsibilities all could burn to ashes 

all she cared was for the deep happy voice

the chuckle in his throat was now her choice


the garden of  love bloomed fierce and fragrant

no sacrifice was too big, no step too significant 

the cobwebs ,the ghosts  all brushed away, he said 

you are my sunshine, my only true love, he said 


basking in the love, she happily gave her all and more

he was hers, he said, no one now mattered any more 

living a dream , she got carried on a stream 

till the pain kicked in and she began to scream


hey shush, quiet, he said or  the world  will know 

I am healed now , whole again – no scars to show 

your  Sacrifice was great and will ever be appreciated 

but now you need to leave for my  own life to be re-created


her shattered heart , her shattered dream, her shuttered eyes

he appeared not to see as they silently said their Goodbyes
