I swallowed a piece of heaven last night

When all the earth was hushed: total freeze.

I grabbed the heaven into my hands so tight

that I might feel thy treasure of breeze.

I swallowed a piece of heaven last night

Sprinkled over with stars so brightly I’m stunned.

They cannot tell if I feel is right,

That’s why I hid underneath, whispered and punned.

Last night, when the wind chills my bone,

I swallowed a piece of thy gallantry

Which overpowered the buried lone.

For the first time, again, my heart palpitates: free.

      Melodious echoes of love, in me is driven

      When last night, I swallowed the piece of heaven.
