sun low on the English horizon
silhouetted in a tree
blackbird calling to his Love

here i am,  my Love
waiting patiently
here i am,  my Love
please,  come to me

i hold my breath
to better hear his song
blackbird calling to his Love

here i am,  my Love
and here i will be
here i am,  my Love
until you come to me

i close my eyes…
hear a soft beating of  wings
blackbird calling to her Love

here i am,  my  Beloved
and here i will stay
by your side,  my Beloved
until my very last day

not the light of the sun
nor the dark of the moon

not the flicker of the stars
nor the tail of a comet

not the tides of the sea
nor the petals of a flower

nothing in all the galaxies
can compare to our love
.
you are mine
i am yours

we are complete

all my life i  have stayed awake from dusk  ’til dawn
for all my life i  have been in love with the Moon

all my life has been spent separate from humanity
for all my life i  have been devoted to Her alone

at night
when the world is quiet
while others sleep
i  talk with the Moon

no,  i  must admit…   i  talk  to  the Moon
for Her only response is a howl upon the wind

moonbeams drift in through the open window
but dance just beyond my reach

i  send my adoring thoughts to Her
on stars that shoot across the sky
no answer ever comes
Her only response is a howl upon the wind

i  see Her looking down upon me
though She pretends to notice naught

She knows i  am hopelessly moonstruck
of  that i  am quite certain

i  whisper sweet nothings to Her
i  sing tender songs of  love
i  promise my heart to Her for all eternity
but Her only response is a howl upon the wind

now my life is coming to its end
a life filled with a fool’s dreams

in my desperation
i  stand naked,  howling at the Moon

at long last She embraces me
and carries my soul home to Her forever

“Moondance”   Michael Buble

lyrics ~

Well, it’s a marvelous night for a moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
‘Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I’m trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night’s magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush

Can I just have one more moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with you, my love

Well, I want to make love to you tonight
I can’t wait ’til the morning has come
And I know that the time is just right
And straight into my arms you will run
And when you come my heart will be waiting
To make sure that you’re never alone
There and then all my dreams will come true, dear
There and then I will make you my own
And every time I touch you, you just tremble inside
And I know how much you want me that you can’t hide

Can I just have one more moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with you, my love

Well, it’s a marvelous night for a moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
‘Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I’m trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night’s magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush
One more moondance with you in the moonlight
On a magic night
La, la, la, la in the moonlight
On a magic night
Can’t I just have one more dance with you my love

⋆ ❍ ⋆ Moon Watches ⋆ ❍ ⋆ by Ainsley Allmark @DolphinDancer

 

* ❍ *

❍ 

She watches
Sees the Earth turn
Beneath her

Sees me dreaming
About you
Holding you close
In my thoughts

Sees you thinking
About me
Swaying gently
In our dance

Five thousand miles
Is but a thought
As our lips touch
And our kisses flow

Moon always watching
Sees us turn in our dance
Smiles in our Love

“Same Side of  The Moon”   Corrinne May

my dear  friend,  Ainsley Allmark,  { @DolphinDancer }  was kind enough to write this poem in response to my poem  “the moon has left me”  (below) ~ his poem  “Moon Watches”  can be  found at his main blog,  Dolphin Muse.  please scroll down to the blogrolls at the bottom of  this page to  find links to his other ‘Dolphin’  blogs.  i’d like to thank Ainsley  for his beautiful  love song in response to mine,  and  for allowing me to share it with you here along with his stunning photograph of  the  “Fool Moon.”

the moon has left me

dani  @  my heart’s love songs

*❍*

the moon has left me

to pay you a visit

( now i miss both you and her )

the trees have stayed though

quiet company for me

( they don’t like to talk )

the stars are hiding

too shy to let me see them

( but i can feel their presence )

tonight the moon will return

as though nothing ever happened

( then leave again to see you )

so we must share her

from opposite sides of  the earth

( yet,  always,  we see the same side of  the moon )
