Nocturna

source
As daylight turns to dusk and night descends
I focus on a bright and distant star
and think about the people I've called friends

From underneath a pale and yellow moon
I wonder how we've scattered out so far,
how some of them have left me far too soon

But in my dreams, their faces I still see
and pondering their fates and where they are,
I wonder if they ever dream of me.

I liked this, I know I often wonder if the people I think and dream about ever think or dream of me......

I love this beauty LM ~ I wonder too how we've all scattered so far and wide ~

Lovely work on the form and you got the linked words too - star/far/are ~

Thanks for participating in Sunday's challenge ~

I found this a difficult form, but yours flows so well and each tercet has a nice sense of completion which I thought mine lacked.
