Fragile is the naive heart,
that beats behind his beloved's breast.
And with every setting sun,
that delicate place he wishes rest.

As the stars appear each night,
he sees the Fire that burns in her eyes.
The moon rises, casting shadows
on the ground. He begins to realize;

It is there in the shadows,
where he must sit and patiently wait
for his Beauty to dance in the
Starlit Night. Her heart was born too late.

As she dances there, he does not dare
to step out into the light.
He knows his heart was born too soon.
Eternally he grasps this night.
