And Could This Flame

Could I have
one night with you
where time would never trod,
where dawn would sleep
and never wake
the stars to take their song;
and could I gaze
within your eyes
and take our souls beyond
the whispered curtain
of the skies
where goddesses belong;
and could this flame,
so young and bright,
burn forever long;
and could this candle
never wane,
waxing on and on?

My Darling,
I think you are
my Starlight.
I know you are
all the stars to me
–you are
the heavens that I see.
