Soft moonlight in her eyes
A flower in her hair
She reached to take my hand
- come with me, if you dare

   I dare, my dear
   Indeed, I do
   I so enjoy
   This time with you

We walked awhile
Without a word
Then suddenly, she stopped

In warm embrace
Our bodies pressed
Onto the sand we dropped

Into the night
We fell in love
As stars dotted the sky

When morning came
She winked and said
- until next time, goodbye
