Remember that night
When you took me for a ride
On your new motor bike?
Standing by the fields of sugar cane,
Licking the juice off my chin,
Holding my face in your hands, saying
Moonlight becomes you.
I had a dream last night.
Same fields of sugar cane.
Your smile inviting,
My long black hair flying as I ran
In the bright moonlight.
I saw me fall.
I looked up and you were gone.
I sobbed to see the stalks of sugar cane
Tall and lonely
One lonely tear shed in torment
Agonizing over each moment
As I dreamed once again of your face
And looked at the never-ending mirage.©
