Happy 32nd Anniversary To My Beauty

A full moon poised above the seaMakes the face of heaven radiant And brings to hearts that are apart The poignant pensiveness of night. I blow out my candle but it is just as bright here; I put on a coat but it is just as cold. So I can only read my message to the moon As I lay me down and long for dreams of you.
