A leaf glided towards the ground
hoping to land with no sound.
But underneath the calm starlit sky
she heard its almost silent sigh.
Was the tree having nightmares too?
Or was it just swaying as the cold winds blew?
She opened the door and stepped out to see
if the tree and its tiny leaf had any plea.
The tree still danced and the leaf strode away
as if in their life there was no gray.
The half bracelet moon grinned wide
and glowing stars surrounded the happy bride.
She walked back in, wishing to smile.
But with nightmares so vile,
nothing but tears found way
and her heavy heart was here to stay.
As she lay on her bed
trying to push all the dread,
he pulled her close and held her tight.
Was that touch was the answer to all her plight?
She smiled a smile and closed her eyes.
The nightmares fled, breaking ties.
Sleep she did, by his side.
Now she too was a happy bride.
