Moon speaks from her heart:
I watch for you every morning with sad weary eyes
after spending the night suspended in dark velvet skies.
First glimpse of dawn excites me when I see you rise.
We share a wink but I never let you hear my lonely cries.
Wish that you could offer me some kind of a sign
to make my heart gladden so it would no longer pine.
If in the sky together, how brightly we would shine,
but we are Sun and Moon, destined never to entwine.
When I am all alone my silver tears threaten to flow.
I cannot risk them falling even when the tides are low.
The stars whisper, "Oh, poor Moon, she loves him so."
In my grief and sorrow, my moonbeams lose their glow.
Sometimes it seems as if there is something you want to say.
I see it in the glint of your golden eyes when you look my way.
I'd love to hang around with you instead of always fading away,
Would it place the world in danger if I stayed with you one day?
We are two celestial bodies, but lovers we're not meant to be.
Both shine brightly from the heavens for all the world to see.
Couples fall in love when they spend the night looking up at me
but we can't share a loving embrace. It's not part of our destiny.
Sun yearns for the Moon:
Your tender words of devotion give me the courage to bestow
the same sentiments to you, dear Moon. I need to let you know
I would give up my throne in the sky just to be your beau.
Each day I wake and pass you by, my love continues to grow.
I've always wanted to tell you how much I long to be with you.
I never want to leave you lonely. You must know my love is true.
But if we dare to fly away together, the Earth will be left askew.
One night of passionate love with you will have to see us through.
To have one moment in your arms is an offer I could never decline.
Stay with me tonight, Sun, and when the stars come out and align,
we will gratefully share our long awaited desire in a love so divine.
You may burn me with your fire, but on this night we will entwine.
