Moonlight shines like a spotlight,

Illuminating our secrets here, on the veranda.

We kiss, we love, here under the stars.

With only the gods as our witnesses,

We indulge ourselves in each other.

So sweet,

Our moments spent wrapped up in our togetherness.

Dancing among the roses and snow and maple trees,

We lose ourselves tonight.

Your silver ring glistens on my finger,

A reminder.

A warning.

The full moon hangs, suspended in the indigo sky,

Like a window to the earth,

Shedding light on all our sins tonight.
