Her Phantom Lover

Night Sky

She never asked

never wanted to know

he came with the house

and he returned

every spring and stayed the summer

her phantom lover

when the nights were filled with lovely scents

and the moon seemed to shine brighter

he appeared smiling so tenderly

top hat and tails

she’d give him her hand

and together they would dance in the dark

the stars above were winking

a sweet and tender melody played

at times like this he seemed so familiar

but she couldn’t place him in her life

perhaps a past lover

she didn’t know, she didn’t care

he was there and she’d lost her heart

to him three springs ago

anxiously she searched the skies

for signs of the coming of the dawn

for then with one tender kiss

he was gone

leaving her heart aching

until the night came riding in once more

smiling so brightly her phantom lover

then one night he appeared

bearing a single white rose

she took it in wonder

pricking her finger on a thorn

they found her in the morning

with the most peaceful smile on her face

the white rose across her chest

one single drop of blood stained the rose

and the garden was filled with white roses

bushes looked just like after a snowfall

the scent so strong wafting in the air

and she, she was walking across the heavens

with her phantom lover forever together
