The night is still young and beautiful,
And it is too early for you to go home.
I have just spent a few moments with you,
Don’t insist that it is time to let you go.
I have not had enough time to look at you,
Let me have my fill of gazing into your eyes.
The heady mix of your presence and the young night,
Has left me intoxicated and in a poetic mood.
I want to spend the whole night next to you,
Singing paeans to your beauty and the moon.
If you insist on leaving early today,
I’ll be heartbroken for the rest of the day.
Let us stay together to welcome the dawn
I promise, then I won’t stop you from going away.
