i called out to the universe, once
in a fleeting, childish trance
i had planned to go to bed quite soon
when i encountered the full, bright form of the moon
oh, it made me stare
made me quite aware
of all the beauty, all around
so i thought "dear universe, please, once i've found
my one true love - tell them to give me the moon!
and please, let it be soon"
it was a cryptic, fleeting thought
but oh, the bliss it brought
for every time i hear my love gasp,
i understand, what i myself, back then, didn't grasp
for she never misses the chance to point up to the sky
to say "can you see how full it is? ooh my!"
