Ojalá que

by Arthur Parten

time could cease right now
and this perfect affair could remain
without flaw or shadow cast upon it
nothing can sully the brilliance inside the glass globe

these visions pass back into reality
eyes reflected into eyes skin covered in roses
hand in hand while all is good in the world
and even if it isn't who cares anyway

that no words passed through such lips
flow down to join a wider gulf than before
with regret and longing shown bare
by the brutal honest sunlight reflecting off the water


Author's Note: Four words is enough to provide a cite, so I'm being polite and honest and telling whoever may read this that I took the words "skin covered in roses" straight from Verbena.
