Lantern in her hand

505

The moon ain’t the only center of the night sky
there’s the girl with blue ocean like eyes
who walks a melodious walk in these streets
I can see her my dreams as the city sleeps by
passing quietly with a
Lantern in her hand
like a sudden rush of wind
like a sudden wave of emotions
my Lord she’s as beautiful as
reflection of moonlight over a calm lake
for me it’s always been unclear
if her smile lightens everything around her
or the lantern in her hand

She walks as if walking across the clouds
at times I feel if she’s the morning rain!
making everything fresh and serene
she’s the reason of my dreams
where I try to find her footprints
when she passes quietly with a
Lantern in her hand
I want to know where she came from
may be a moon fairy, may be a rainbow princess
whatever she may be
she’s the hope, love and life to me
for me it’s always been unclear
if her smile lightens everything around her
or the lantern in her hand
