Moondust

As we start on this journey together,
We knew not each other.
We were ignorant in bliss
Life was rainbows and butterflies, as it so often is.
Like moondust settling on my eyes; my vision blurred and hazy.
The moondust I liked so much; new and sparkly as it were,
I knew not I was losing vision,
Knew not the web you had me in.
Then came a day,
When the moondust cleared and my vision sparkly clear,
Time I had to thank, for the lesson dear.
As the moondust fades away
The illusion sways.
But, it was the choices we made,
Today dearly paid
in the ghosts of our past,
Roaming the halls and strangers at last.
