Nightingale by the window

Holding a picture of you in my hand
here I stand
by the window of my room
talking to the lovely moon
hoping for our love to grow as high
as tall as the sky
listening to the sound of your breath
that seems to resonate with the beat of my heart
your existence in my world means life to me
I close my eyes as you breathe
to envision us in a midnight dream
praying to God to make our story last
wishing life to cast
it’s best and most precious blessings
over two of us
and like the nightingale by the window
I hope to sing songs of love for you
like the nightingale by the window
I hope to be your companion

The way tides reflect moonlight
you make everything sound alright
the heart’s connection that strengthens my affection
looking at the sky that brings rain
everything looks as if being cleaned of every stain
hoping for our love to reach as high
as high as the sky
listening to the sound of your breath
that seems to resonate with the beat of my heart
your existence in my world means verve to me
I close my eyes as you breathe
to imagine us eternally happy in my midnight dream
praying to God to make it last
wishing life to cast
it’s best and most precious blessings
over two of us
and like the nightingale by the window
I hope to sing songs of love for you
like the nightingale by the window
I hope to be your companion
