Searching for Starry Night

By: Guanghao Yu

When I look into the lonely night sky,
I am reminded of yesterday’s passion.
Didn’t the stars fill the sky last night?
Didn’t your face reflect
The radiance of the moon?
We made music in the air, dancing
Under heaven’s light.
Your hair was still flowing,
Your lips ripe and glowing,
Your touch sated my longing,
A song everlasting. 

Oh starry night. When your eyes
Faded from my sight, I went searching,
Searching in the sea of the now-starless sky.
Yield me one tune, one sign, one glowing tear,
To take to her, when I’ve found her, in some
Distant starry night.
