Go ye Moon

My life is so bright

As I am enjoying the moonlight

For the moon every night I wait for

I know it will come up for sure

I can see my beloved in the moon face

With my eyes I hug and embrace

Can you imagine the sky without its moon?

It is like a nightingale that lost its tone

The moon is a witness of our love up in the sky

That makes our hearts flutter and fly

The moon sometimes appears and sometimes can disappear

After joy and happiness, life is full of fear

Go ye moon and ask her

My only love and dear

Why she let me in her love to fall

And before her I didn’t know love at all

From my love stars and moon learn

To keep awake shinning and burn

If I can open my eyes for all

I will look at you and never blink at all

For your love I always long

To you my heart and soul they belong

Although your love sometimes gives me pain

Pains that I can’t explain

I love the moon for your sake

I adore it and can never forsake

Go ye moon ask her if she loves me or not

Whom I love and to forget I can not

I will always be faithful and steadfast

As my love for you will always last

How I can the fear frame to destroy

And escape to your arms and my joy

Your love is carved in my heart and soul

Your face with the moon I always recall

Go ye moon and ask her

If she deserves all my care

If her love is really sheer

Why she is always far not near

Since I knew her, I knew what the meaning of pride

 

Since then I have affection and tenderness beside

There is something inside my heart

Tells me never go, never depart

If forget everything may I

Never forget your eye

I love you, I confess

Nothing will change my love more or less

Go ye moon and tell her

She owns my heartbeats and always has my care

I love you….I swear

You own every heartbeat I bear

Since I have known you, my heart began to blow

For sincere love and cure

I will always be your angel guard

From any difficult times or hard

You have changed my love my dear

I have known true love after pain and fear

Go ye moon and ask her

How all this love in my heart to bear

Oh my only love and true

You deserve a river of love to flow

When you leave me, my heart cries

Waiting for your love and sighs

Every heartbeat for you I send

As your love has no limit, has no end

Don’t leave me, never say bye

Don’t let the moon leave its sky

Go ye moon and tell her

She of course deserves all my love and care.
