Every Night

The garden looks its finest in the moonlight every spring,
When you and I are sitting and the blackbird starts to sing.
The stars adopt an anthem and the planets want to play,
An orchestra of candles seems to play each day away.

All night and day I’ll love you and the stars above will shine,
In every heart there’s room for love and yours belongs in mine.

The summer nights are endless and they fill our love with scent.
The stars  make sure to sparkle and their magic charms are spent.
The moon just shines her smiling face and I am lost in yours,
A balmy breeze now cools us as we make love out of doors.

All night and day I’ll love you and the stars above will shine,
In every heart there’s room for love and yours belongs in mine.

The Autumn, and you left me and the stars put out their lights.
There wasn’t room for loving in the unforgiving nights.
The leaves that fell were just a sign that I had lost your love,
The clouds of gloom inside me were reflected up above.

All night and day I’ll love you and the stars above will shine,
In every heart there’s room for love and yours belongs in mine.

When winter snow was deepest and the nights were bleak and cold
A little bird appeared to speak and this is what he told;
That you were sad and lonely and you pined for all we’d lost
And wanted to begin again and pay the price it cost.

All night and day I’ll love you and the stars above will shine,
In every heart there’s room for love and yours belongs in mine.

The spring returned to you and me and love returned as well,
We lost out hearts in moonlight as the bird was sure to tell.
Then in my dreams you whispered as you spelt out in your life
Our love is now forever and you want to be my wife.

All night and day I’ll love you and the stars above will shine,
In every heart there’s room for love and yours belongs in mine.

The seasons of romancing and the sadness when it goes,
The love that’s spent in moonlit nights where perfect starlight glows.
All of the year is made for us, for other lovers too,
And there can be no more to say, just know that I love you.
