The moon – the playful moon, knows how to play it all
At times oh so beautifully full, shimmering bright
Yet would hide behind those irrational cotton balls
Only allowing through them, a wink of its soothing light
‘t knows how to make the lorn lovers lurch for it
through the curtains that rise and fall
immersed in the warmth of their emotions
it sets a foreplay before they listen to their pounding hearts

…astounded in the haze
they ran around in the woods playing hide and seek

for the sake of the moment, when they kissed and love that greet

hooked like forever in each other’s gaze…

The moon – the incorrigibly romantic moon, gives them the wings
To let their love take a flight beyond the skies to a new horizon
Naïve are the lovers who succumb to the vagaries of the one
Who stands alone yet bright in the sky studded with stars
Hit by the loneliness itself, it has found entertainment on the stroll
Seeing the hearts finding solace under the sky lit by its presence
Brimming with hopes, weaving dreams and left with never-to-heal scars
What it never tells them is that these bright nights will be followed by the insane dark

…blinded by the brightness
Of the moon and the glint of the love in their eyes
Togetherness, they gifted each other in all possible stride
From destiny, they demanded – nothing more, nothing less…

The moon – the playful moon, knows how to play it all
At times oh so beautifully full and aah! at times it’s so dark
Leaving the struck by love, to drive in a direction so opposite
Together for always in the hearts, yet by destinies so far
Will vanish the silver linings, the silhouettes of the trees that stand tall
And suddenly disappear the paths, where hands-in-hands they walk
though it sets a cold play, which still echoes love and a rhythm so divine

For they hush to the playful moon “it’s just a matter of time”
