Star light, star bright,
where is my star I
see at night?...

I lift my head and time stands still,
Nothing for me tonight but this damp,
cold chill.

My night is dark without her light,
no voice to hear, no cause for delight.

I close my eyes and I see your face,
I lean my head back, and I can imagine
your embrace.

Your skin is so soft, your touch is so tender,
when I hold you next to me, my heart beats faster.

I long for a time when you could be near,
so that I can hold you close and whisper in your ear.

Stay with me tonight…
