This Moonless Night

I watched the skies and wondered on a dream
When you gaze on the stars this moonless night
Do senses drift as if upon a stream
Or do they thunder like a city crowd?
Does love lead your heart to take delight
While floating on a wispy spiral cloud?
And do those stars above seem extra bright
When words of love pulsate within your breast?
Does passion embrace you within its shroud
As on your pillow slip you gently rest?
And do you feel the kiss my lips endowed
Upon your cheek, a touch of love’s insight?
Oh hear my love the skies have heard professed,
When you gaze on the stars this moonless night!
