On a clear starlit night: I rested on the dunes;
listened to the ocean, singing its sweet tunes.
Waves keeping beat; by lapping on the sand;
I saw a falling star, thrown by God’s own hand.
The smell of salt water; the fragrance of the sea;
I closed my eyes; my thoughts drifted onto thee.
Was not long ago; we walked a beach like this;
And under moonlit sky; we shared a silent kiss.
That night too, shooting star was seen above;
We made a wish upon it; a wish of lasting love.
Like the ocean tide; love can be drawn away;
taking you from me; on a mournful rainy day.
I savored moments spent; left with no regret;
But on nights like this; my heart cannot forget.
Stars are shining brightly; moon full and high;
ocean sings sweetly; but oh the wind doth sigh.
