O, I See - Cassandra Kane

Once night descends, the young star softly glows

While tired eyes of mine close hours few,
And my poor mind, exhausted with my woes,
Roams through romantic reveries of you.
O, I see you, my love, my shining knight.

You slay the beast, you save me from despair.

O, I see us, beneath the dazzling light.

We run, we dance, we dream without a care.
But once sun arises, stars return to bed,
Yet I resist awaking from this sleep.
But you are not the knight dreamed in my head,

And these, our only memories, I keep.
            When I see you, you set my heart aflame.
            I wonder, love, if you see me the same.
