Did we become lovers before
We exchanged our first Valentines?
I remember the first place and time
But no longer the day or hour
Our time went by very fast
That happens with your soul-mate
Now our Earth time is getting late
I wish it could  forever last.
Maybe this way is the best
Going out in a blaze so fiery bright
Recall our days and romantic nights
Taking all we could, never less
Now we approach the start of our Night
Closing in on the distant other side
Listening to the Western Ocean Tide
Looking up and loving the stars so bright.
