The sun has set, she’s gone to sleep
And now the darkness begins to seep
I look out on the harbour, and what do I see?
A full moon rises; lighting up the Tasman Sea.
A thousand dark sapphires set in white gold
The wonder I feel, never grows old
A benevolent face so suddenly peeks
As though wanting to know what it is, I seek.
I look into his eyes, filled with such kindness
Light cascades all around me; all else is blindness
As I gaze into that face, what I seek I find there
A love so sweet and tender; it strips all pretense bare.
I stand on the shore; a voice calls me by name
I see my ‘True love’; his face is the same
That face in the moon I had so longed to see;
Reflected the moonlight on the Tasman Sea.
