you

Given all that has passed and is pressing,
Shown beneath this velvet veil of night;
Shallow do these words now feel from this breath,
Small these thoughts held against your might.

Deep the wellspring of these flighty thoughts,
Ardent arrows of dreams their flight do aid;
If only one should land upon your fiery brow,
This task would stand completed.

This day that dawns a thousand sighs unbounded,
Should leave so barren a bosom as mine;
There across Hercules seas should flash,
Hermes’s wings could barely keep apace.

Glorious in splendour lift up your eyes,
The days of your future stand ready to unfurl;
Beneath what skies none may yet say;
To you alone time listens,
Waits.
