This Will Be Forever

My dear, when I am away, each

time the moon is full look up

into the sky and think of me,

and I will be thinking of you

Close your pretty eyes, and

in this moment of magic,

feel my arms around you,

feel my lips pressing yours.

Open your eyes and place

a wish on a twinkling star.

If we wish on the same star,

maybe our wish will come true.

If we wished the same thing

and our star answers that wish,

the next time the moon is full,

no need to close your eyes again.

Just look around, and I will be

there to take you in my arms

and hold you close to me, never

to part again..this will be forever.
