You come and go as you traverse the sky
Oceans apart still we never shall fall
United beyond what passes these eyes
For no Earthly sum would we miss it all
From beginnings until ending’s sad sound
We never asked for anything like this
Just to keep heads in air and feet on ground
But we betrayed ourselves with a first kiss
Someday became one day then just never
As the noise grew louder, hands to my ears
The pain grew greater as I remembered
That the loudest sound was us with you here

Your beauty has been compared to the stars,
Your absence is the silence that they are

this is excellent jer,
love the metaphors and imagery of the stars and sky...
and the emotional imagery is perfect.
your muse said all the right things ...
keep listening to her/him  
very well written
very cool poem...Love the title too.

 Is it too much to find an answer,
Is it too much to hold you close.
Is it too much to find a reason,
Is it too much to free my soul --
From self control ...
And I know you're always waiting for me ...
You take me far away,
And I know you're holding me ...
And it's better now ...

"Someday became one day then just never"
Words of pain but yet beauty can still come of it.  Beautiful piece.

Sigh, this is great my friend. . . it would appear that we have both heard the silence of the stars. . .

Excellent as always my fellow romantic. . .
