Through The Starry Darkness

I walked through starry darkness of a summer night
 Following the footprints you left on the sand of time-
 No one knew about my lonely search
 Except the night sky which kept it memory well hidden
 Inside the wings of glowing nocturnal clouds.

 You came back when I disappeared into the mist
Just like a cloud which easily disppears into thin air-
 You found one blue feather on my doorstep
 Along with tiny dried petals of a red flower.
