That Halcyon Night

The weather cold, an idyllic cove
That halcyon night we met
A lake serene, our love between
Two stars that glowed above
Your misty eyes, so blue, yet low
You knew twas brief
You hid your grief
I count ten years ago
The essence of your presence
Remains with me, my pet
The weather cold, an idyllic cove
That halcyon night we met
