The Evening Star

Anderson Jon 2017

Kiss me softly, kiss me long
For come tomorrow, you will be gone
Into a world of sea and sky
Leaving me lonely with the tide

Dream of a distant, peaceful shore
Away from the pounding waves of war
Where we can lift our hearts on/up high
And join our hands across the sky

Meet silver sand(?), like wings in flight
That touch the moon and (?) the night
The west world winds shall guide your path
Star strands on high shall bring you back

Through the icy teeth of night
My love for you shall be the light
Casting a glimmer from afar
When you behold the Evening star

The waves that break upon my heart
Shall sound a sigh while we are apart
May sword and shield keep you from harm
'Til you are safe within my arms

Over the ocean deep and green
Forever they speak and shall be seen
Casting a glimmer from afar
When you behold the Evening star

Take on this voyage all my prayers
My heart will have wings to lead you there
To kiss you softly, kiss you long
Beyond the gleaming gates of dawn
