My name in her mouth

I loved her
more, than I can know
her yellow-pink smile, sing-song voice
lit eyes that widened to meet mine
She moved to the rhythm of her seasons
and I, have fallen for her from the time
my name, fell from her thin lips
like laughing clear water
a call, that trembles, the chambers of my heart.
I had only ever beheld her 
till I looked to the left, behind my shoulder
A deer, prancing away in the soft green field
and I chased him, left my home behind
Since then, I have sung in the meadows of love
of my lost home
Lost home
