Moonlight

I walked in the moonlight,
Where the Sun never shone.
The sight that I saw
Chilled me to the bone.

They say the saying’s false;
There is no love at first sight.
But it was in that place that I fell;
It was in the moonlight.

It was you, who I found,
As beautiful as could be.
That’s when love struck hard;
That’s when it hit me.

You turned around,
And I gasped.
I cast my head down and kept walking;
I didn’t look as I passed.

The moonlight plays tricks;
That’s why I didn’t look.
I was scared your beauty wouldn’t be true;
It’s the oldest trick in the book.

But there was a force
That made me turn back around.
I realized right there,
I couldn’t be more love-bound.

There in the moonlight,
Beauty was evident on your face.
And when the Sun had risen,
Nothing was misplaced.
