Cherry Blossom Moon

It has come too soon
This cherry blossom moon
Night-time air too sweet
Falling at your feet
A lover’s kiss too quick
To touch your cheek

Night-time revelry
Dancing, you and me
Jazz and white, white wine
All our hopes entwine
A promise made too soon
Is all you seek

So drunk on brief delight
This cherry blossom night
I’ll not recall your face
Or dancing in this place
The night will melt away
Within the week

It has come too soon
This cherry blossom moon
Night-time air too sweet
Falling at your feet
A lover’s kiss too quick
To touch your cheek
