Starry Dreams

a poem by Unmana Datta

I may not vow never to leave you;
Can a star leave the sky?
You cannot ever push me away
Even if you were to try.
For you and I belong together
As friends and companions true:
And you know I’ll love you forever
Because I can’t stop loving you.

I can’t imagine what life would be like
If you were ever to go away.
It seems as ridiculous as thinking
If night can be without day.
So always remain at my side,
Understanding my ways and needs;
While I be the one you turn to,
And let love govern all our deeds.
