From the mind of a mild mannered maniac
I love how the starlight caresses your hair,
how the breeze softly kisses, those tresses, so
Your Sapphire eyes peer so far into mine,
searching my soul for an answer devine.
Then you smile and I’m frozen, unable to move;
lost to the world in some new kind of groove.
There’s a powerful magic an essence so pure;
sensed yet unseen, but still there I am sure.
We bathe in the starlight, as we two stroll along.
Somewhere there’s music; they’re playing our
This night is alive with romantic desire.
We touch, and electrical sparks light its fire.
As we gaze at the night sky a lone shooting star,
streaks through the heavens above us so far.
We each make a wish; mine will surely come true,
To spend my forever together with you.
We free-fall together in gentle embrace;
It’s as if we are drifting away into space.
With starlight to guide us up, up, and away,
To the dizzying heights of love’s own milkyway.
Will there be other evenings, other moments like
Will we, arm-in-arm, cherish each sweet tender
Will the stars shine as brightly? Will the breeze
seem to say?
“This is your special time. Seize the day!
Seize the day!
