In the moonlight,
everything in a golden glow,
so slow and mellow,
sipping homemade wine,
my thoughts occupied –
with the memory of you.
You always seemed true,
loved me as only you knew,
gave me the sun in the morning
and sweet kisses when the day ended.
The words you whispered to me,
so very tender,
gave my heart wings,
made me love you forever and a day.
The moon seemed to be smiling,
as glittering stars make him a wreath,
clouds played with light and shadow,
the scent of jasmine perfumed the air,
I remembered the magical summers of long ago –
the summers of you and me.
How funny it seems,
that it was all like a dream.
Life is like that it comes and goes,
although I wish you were still here with me,
side by side as we grow old,
silver-haired with walking sticks,
still holding hands –
yes, that is what I miss.
Life seems to fly by,
along with birds in the sky,
day after day,
we go forth like through a revolving door,
almost as soon as we step forth –
we are already going away.
I looked at the winking stars in the sky
and wondered which one you were swinging on,
so far and wide,
the eternal heavens.
Here’s to you,
I lifted my wine glass,
as my eyes looked upon the beauty,
of the moon and stars
and I imagined your smile –
as brilliant as the heavenly orbs in the sky
