In the silver glow of moonlight

Written by: Jeff Green

In the silver glow of moonlight you are all I want to see,
You are every dark red rosebud, every line of poetry.

When we met, that summer evening, time was halted for a while
And I kissed the stars above us who had given me your smile.
You wore earrings full of starlight and a dress of woven night,
Like a goddess from Olympus you pushed all else from my sight.

There were wisps of silver cloudlets filling spaces in the sky,
In the breeze between the treetops was the sound of nature's sigh;
For she knew she had been bested and the crown was yours to wear,
You were beauty made as woman, there was gold dust in your hair.

In the silver glow of moonlight you are all I want to see,
You are every dark red rosebud, every line of poetry.

Every moment that I've known you I have known that love can grow
And in every word I've written I have put that love on show.
I can taste your tender kisses when you whisper me my name,
If I float across the heavens I will know you are to blame.

When you kissed and called me lover, when you gave me all the world,
I was suddenly immortal and my colours were unfurled.
We can dance until forever under skies of midnight blue
And all I will be thinking is it's me that's here with you.

In the silver glow of moonlight you are all I want to see,
You are every dark red rosebud, every line of poetry.
