Tree lights at night

One Night

One night I’ll look out from my bedroom window
when the sky is clear and the moon shows no shadow,
and see the stars shining brightly in the heavens above,
the way they shone for us when we were so in love.

One night I’ll reach out to turn off my lamp,
and remember the feeling of that evening once more,
when you so gently held my head in your hands,
and helped me to see the world through your soul.

One night I’ll look out and glance down the avenue
to see headlights in the distance that don’t pass on by,
they’ll slow just a bit, to make sure the address is right,
and we’ll share love while the stars above dance through the night.
