Have You Never Looked . . .

Have you never looked
across a moonlit sea
and seen an island full
of what will never be?

Have you never wept
for those whom you have lost,
for the flowers that lie dying
beneath a bitter frost?

Have you never wished
upon the night's first star
to have things as they might have been
instead of as they are?

Have you never dreamed
of how the world could be
if we and they did not exist
but only you and me?

Have you never looked
across a moonlit sea
and seen an island full
of what there yet might be?
