Loving You from Far Away

Passing on
As I look up, you look down, but our love still shines bright
As it meets in one place
From there it lights up the night sky
Moonlit love

Moving
As the night chirps
I send my love to you
For you also used to hear this jolly nighttime song
But now I listen alone
You, very far away.
Still they bring back happy memories
Crickets singing down memory lane

Away at school
Every day I miss your happy laugh
Every night I fell asleep to your gentle snore
Not tonight
When I look at Orion and the dippers big and small, I love you even more
The way you listen to my stories
I think about that
And I know
I finally feel close even though we are far apart
Memories shine bright through the stars
