Stare up at the Moon and stars,
Which one’s Venus, which one’s Mars?
See the wonders of the sky,
Made for lovers, you and I.
Planets orbit around our Sun,
Unique traits in every one.
Just like those I see in you,
In everything, you say and do.
The heavens are a source of love,
Galaxies abound, above.
Our own is called The Milky Way,
My love for you it grows each day.
The earth has only one small moon,
It makes young lovers kiss and swoon.
Its influence is like a dart,
Shooting beams into the heart.
I pull you close and kiss your lips,
Embracing you in a lover’s grip.
Sweet desire burns in your eyes,
As from your lips escape soft sighs.
Invite me to your warm soft bed,
Tell me the thoughts inside your head.
Let our passions have their way,
And share our love ’til the break of day.
