Stars in Their Eyes

They met quite by chance

At an old-fashioned dance

Together they met the dawn

And knew that they had seen love


Hand in hand

They continued on

As love grew

For them it was always like new


There were times

That she wondered

What was on his mind?

But his kiss told her it was all fine


Then she saw the stars in his eyes

And knew why

Her love for him

Would never die


He often wondered

What had made him

See her but once

And have his heart skip a beat


It was her smile

Her gentle touch

That made him love her

So very much


As time went on he knew

That to her he would always be true

Never any doubt about tomorrow

Hand in hand they wandered on


Once there was a time

When he wondered

What was on her mind?

She seemed so distant that time


Then he saw the stars in her eyes

And he knew why

His love for her

Would never die


The stars were for dreaming

The moon shown the light

That brought them together

Dancing in the night


The sun shown the way

To every bright day

Just the two of them

Just as it should be


Then came the rain

When she would complain

And he waited until

Her smile chased the storm clouds away


Whenever he would frown

She thought of a way

To turn it upside down

Kissing all his cares away


Days were for chasing rainbows

Dreaming of times to come

Loving each other

Till the day was done


Nights spent sharing

The passion they had

Loving one another

Till the darkness faded away


And if any of them had any doubts

That their future wouldn’t be bright

They shared tender kisses

Knowing they were meant for one another


Then they saw the stars

Shining in both their eyes

And they knew why

Their love for one another would never die
