Be patient there beneath the stars
The night is ever long
The past has left it's love mourned scars
Now lyrics in his song...

Breathe in the night air,cold and sweet,
Let your hands explore...
and let me be there, at your feet..
If you require more.

The Moon our only source of light,
and yet..reveals so much..
What quiet revelry this night...
alone, at last... we touch.
