“Go Ye Moon” by Walid Abdallah


My life is so bright
As I am enjoying the moonlight
For the moon every night I wait for
I know it will come up for sure
I can see my beloved in the moon face
With my eyes I hug and embrace
Can you imagine the sky without its moon?
It is like a nightingale that lost its tone
The moon is a witness of our love up in the sky
That makes our hearts flutter and fly
The moon sometimes appears and sometimes can disappear
After joy and happiness, life is full of fear
Go ye moon and ask her
My only love and dear
Why she let me in her love to fall
And before her I didn’t know love at all
From my love stars and moon learn
To keep awake shinning and burn
If I can open my eyes for all
I will look at you and never blink at all
For your love I always long
To you my heart and soul they belong
Although your love sometimes gives me pain
Pains that I can’t explain
I love the moon for your sake
I adore it and can never forsake
Go ye moon ask her if she loves me or not
Whom I love and to forget I can not
I will always be faithful and steadfast
As my love for you will always last
How I can the fear frame to destroy
And escape to your arms and my joy
Your love is carved in my heart and soul
Your face with the moon I always recall
Go ya moon and ask her
If she deserves all my care
If her love is really sheer
Why she is always far not near
Since I knew her, I knew what the meaning of pride
Since then I have affection and tenderness beside
There is something inside my heart
Tells me never go, never depart
If forget everything may I
Never forget your eye
I love you, I confess
Nothing will change my love more or less
Go ye moon and tell her
She owns my heartbeats and always has my care
I love you….I swear
You own every heartbeat I bear
Since I have known you, my heart began to blow
For sincere love and cure
I will always be your angel guard
From any difficult times or hard
You have changed my love my dear
I have known true love after pain and fear
Go ye moon and ask her
How all this love in my heart to bear
Oh my only love and true
You deserve a river of love to flow
When you leave me my heart cries
Waiting for your love and sighs
Every heartbeat for you I send
As your love has no limit, has no end
Don’t leave me, never say bye
Don’t let the moon leave its sky
Go ye moon and tell her
She of course deserve all my love and care
