I live again that night when from our hill
We watched the moon lay pearls upon the sea!
We were alone, and you pressed close to me.
Remembering, I feel again the thrill
Of your embrace holding me near and still.
We knew at last that it was meant to be --
Our love that set all inhibitions free
And made emotion master of the will.

Forsaking hostile paths we ceased to roam;
Behind we left our narrow, cramped lagoon;
Alone, at last, we stepped from shrouds of fright,
Upon the coast the sea dashed clouds of foam,
The stars paid silent homage to the moon.
We had been born to love on such a night!
