Under a Blood Moon

Under a blood moon, we kissed
This fortuitous sign in the sky
I held you near, measured the faith of your heart
Beneath this watchful eye

As two, we loved, you and I
This first time, under a blood moon
Even as she waned, and bid the world goodbye
Even though the moment passed too soon

Let us abide here, until the end of time
This precious moment, this celestial sign
Bathed in crimson, under a blood moon
Our love, our destiny, a heavenly design

No vainglorious sun, or self-important braggart star,
To mar this, our love, under this eye, forever true
Let this chance bind us, heart to heart, for eternity
Under a blood moon
