Today the sky is a lazy shade of blue
and the clouds seem to huddle together
as if they are planning a surprise shower.
The wind is whispering in the ears of lovers
lying along the oceanfront, watching the sunrise.
While here at home I again woke up to an empty bed
surrounded by sadness circulating in the atmosphere.
And the flame from the lantern in the window has died.
I guess you never even saw the light.
