It is cold and desolate in this silent place
All alone in the moonlight
The stars are too far away in time and space
I cry out but no one hears, no one sees me
I’m all alone in the moonlight
I see your face as I see the moon ~
Clear and bright, then veiled by thin wisps of cloud,
And not at all when hidden behind dense clouds,
and then…You appear again clear and bright
For a few brief moments it feels warm and special,
In this silent place
Yet I am still alone in the moonlight.
Somewhere across space and time
We have met very long ago
Long before we found each other
And in this space and time
For a few brief moments,
I was not alone in the moonlight.
A special connection created an everlasting bond
And yet, as quickly we found each other, we had to part.
I am again alone in the moonlight.
