Every Time I Look at the Moon

It's as bright as day
But the sun's gone down
And every time I want you to stay
You leave this town

So close, yet so far away
You taught me something that I didn't know
'Cause when you're gone today
I just can't seem to let go

'Cause every time I look at the moon
I think of you and know it's true
You and I, together we'll be
Set with the stars, shining free
'Cause every time I look to the sky
And see the heavens spread up high
I know this is something that I just can't deny
Girl, I'm thinkin' about you all the time

And in the morning when the sun rise
I see your face in the soft, soft clouds
Girl, this should come as no surprise
We won't let this bring us down

'Cause every time I look at the moon
I think of you and know it's true
You and I, together we'll be
Set with the stars, shining free
'Cause every time I look to the sky
And see the heavens spread up high
I know this is something that I just can't deny
Girl, I'm thinkin' about you all the time

And when I fall asleep at night
You're right there by my side
Holding my hand in the dark
Our smiles show the hint of a spark
And I'll open my arms and hold you tight
When I'm dreaming of you, I can't lose sight
Of the jewel of my heart
Lets play our part

'Cause every time I look at the moon
I think of you and know it's true
You and I, together we'll be
Set with the stars, shining free
'Cause every time I look to the sky
And see the heavens spread up high
I know this is something that I just can't deny
Girl, I'm thinkin' about you all the time
Every time that I look at the moon

I liked this poem/song very much and am again surprised at your incredible way with words. Reading this, I felt like I was being revealed some great truth about something both so celestial and human. Well done.

Well, she IS my "gift from above," so to speak. :) Does that count as being celestial?
