• 'Neath velvet cloth of night and shadows,
    my heart confessed its thoughts to the wind.
    I could feel your smile from a distance
    with the touch of your closeness profound.

    The sun reached behind a fading sky,
    so the moon could take its proper place.
    Day to darkness, brightened by the stars,
    leaving upon the blue waters
    a shimmering portrait of your face.

    You, with all your savoring sweetness,
    tenderly pierced the walls of my soul
    as you wove a new tapestry with
    the golden threads of your hope and love.

    Yesterday you offered me courage,
    today you endowed me with your strength.
    Every moment together, a gift.
    Every day a celebration of life.

    How lovely the music of your heart.
    You are the air I breathe, sound I hear
    and the spirit that gently moves me.
    I don't wish for the moon, I have the stars.
