I beg the moon tonight
For one more minute of light….
One last glance at the smile on his face,
The smile of the moon and my lover
Enlightened, aware of this minute of
Grace…. that pushes back darkness,
One more minute to shine in his eyes,
One more minute as gathering clouds
Come to shadow silver that shimmers on lake,
Rippling its way in silence of night.

Give us this one extra minute to see in the dew
The whole of the world, to pause in the
Stillness before it grows dark….
Draw close with one kiss, lingering lips,
Both hands on his hips, eyes upon eyes,
Treasuring this minute of moonlight tonight.
