The East River and full moon

To bring alive new moments

Beyond the ones we had before

Or even dreamt could be

In life there are eternities

In you the wisdom to live and guide

And fill the hearts of those who love you

With a passion for romance and happiness

Dear Jessica

Today and always

You are, dear Jessica

Lady of the dream


To swiftly shrinking time

She took her dream

And reckoned with the force

That brought her to the light

And to her calling

She beckoned as she failed

And saw her reasons

Linger with the longer living

That they know of meaning

And the everlasting flow

The final ebb

A touch which leaves

As quickly as the happiness

That caused the dream to be

Alone, she goes
