Beneath the dim, eternal glow of night,
Stargazer lilies blossom in the rain.
As dusk returns to dawn, the sun brings light
To petals fallen in a trail of pain.

A stranger wanders, searching for the one.
While tears glisten in his bloodshot eyes,
Afraid of letting go, of being done,
He lets himself give up, in grief, he cries.

A bird in broken, lonely hearts takes wing,
Hope of a second chance at love it holds.
And with it comes another day to sing
A song of magic waiting to unfold.

And only memories bear witness to
The beauty of the lilies as they renew.

What type of sonnet is this? It's not Petrarchan or Shakespearean. :)
