To meet your eyes in the velvet darkness of these sleeping hours.
Let the light of my melody caress your longing heart.
Let the echo of my lingering kiss brush your hungering lips.
O moonlight! I envy you, for you smile upon my beloved,
While I must wrap my kisses up in your beams to reach him.
Faithful watcher over the darkness, lightener of the stars,
Please sing my love letters to his eyes with your gentle light.
