Swinging on moonbeams
up among the stars,

A cupid watches over us
And stares in disbelief

It was his first assignment,
He’d studied long and hard:

“You must first see the glow
as they hold each other tight…
Yes, it’s there;

“Secondly, look for the signs
of admiration and respect…
Yes, they adore each other;

“Then, hold them up to the moonlight
So you can see their hearts

“Infuse your arrow with stardust,
then taking careful aim

“Pull the bow backward
and let the magic begin.”

It’s been decades since he “shot us”
but the magic hasn’t left;

The glow still surrounds us
With admiration and respect.
