Not Just Yet

Oh, don’t leave me
tonight,  just yet.

For that moon has
lit desire in such places,
When a coy night hid
in your untamed tresses.

The stars too have
only just met,
Oh, don’t leave me
tonight, just yet.

See how fireflies now
tired have gone to sleep,
And how a fire in that
cold hearth waits to be lit.

Let’s no longer make
that fire wait,
Oh, don’t leave me
tonight, just yet.

Two moist eyes have
for long, longed this night.
When two souls love
their homes in moonlight.

Let two verses melt
before its late,
Oh, don’t leave me
tonight, just yet.
