Night of the Falling Stars
A true story - On one of those warm, romantic August nights, around the
time of the Perseids, my Love and I were
walking around one of our favorite haunts, Winnekenni

We went out to share the night all alone.
You walked with me then;
I held your hand then.
We felt in out kisses the warm of the dark.
And it was for us then,
for just you and me then.
And it was like wine effervescent with stars.
Remember the night of the teardrop stars.
We lay in the grass then;
I held you so close then.
And we held in our arms the warm of the dark.
Between you and me then,

At the stars in the sky then.
And they fell from their nests in the warm of the dark.
And they danced a dance then;
They danced for us then.
Remember the night of the falling stars.
