Oh Velvet Starry Night

Oh velvet starry night

custodian of dreams,

glittering with hope and

enlightening lunar beams.

Chaperoning the souls 

lost in the inky skies,

Illuminating shadows

the cosmos harmonised

shimmering in silence.

Your aura is a light,

it’s moonstruck with wishes

when skies are ebonised.

Spirits gaze with wonder 

in twilight reverie.

Captives of the moonlights 

spellbound serenity.
