Nearness Of You

 Here we go again dear,

Bright moon our delight,

I had hoped for wine,

And twinkling stars, but

You and me near remain.

No one counts stars to wit,

It's just a game, romance

Can just as well be a 

A book on your mantel,

A story to fount night.

When all is said and done

Awakening should be

Just as sweet as words

Like dripping of treacle

Spoken or read before
