Different Paths


the moon was so bright
and our bones were alive;
there was warmth in our souls
as we fell in love with the night.
and when i looked at you, your eyes shone
     they were even brighter than the moon, love.
they shone with passion and the deepest kind of affection.
and suddenly i realized my heart was on fire
kindled by charity and a little curiosity.
but there was also tears in my eyes,
because i know we're on different paths, love.
you've made your decisions and i've made mine.
and even though we may be better than the sun and the moon together,
our orbits are pulling us apart.
and i can't ask you to change for me, love,
because i adore you just the way you are.
but i pray that one day, God will get hold of your heart, love.
and even if our paths on this earth never cross again.
i can't bear the thought of not seeing you in heaven, dear.
