Sognare

Softly like thieves we stole away at dusk

to snatch a precious moment in love's warm embrace.

The sun wished us well as it fell in the sea,

with the sky finally dark the stars all ran free.

The world wide before us we wended our way,

wordless and spellbound in the depths of the night.

The wind sang a song but spoke not a word

so silence could speak and love could be heard.

Lonesome but not lonely

we walk the path of the old place

hand in hand under stars glinting like memories,

each as bright as the love in your eyes.

Visions flourish as we walk along the beach

of letters written while half a world apart.

Your breath steals the chill that sets in my body

when you whisper my name and we turn to the sea.

Warmly with love the water licks our feet

where once its bite had been so cold.

I sob in my joy as I rest in your arms,

two former thieves now safe from harm.

Lonesome but not lonely

we join our hearts in the old place

hand in hand under stars glinting like dreams,

each as bright as the love in your eyes.
