The moonlight builds a marble staircase
Which spirals to the clouds of bliss;
As dancing hearts lead us along
Why can’t we have all that we wish?
We’re soaring on the winds of love,
Where whispered words infatuate;
With every step in happiness
What is the reason we should wait?
But love is more than clouds of bliss,
Or marble stairways in the sky—
True love is choosing what is best
And letting my desires die…
When our hearts dance in waves of moonlight,
Let sacrifice direct the way,
For Christ defined the path of love
Denying feelings to obey—
I love you, Dear, with all I am,
So much that I won’t hesitate
To give myself for what is best—
And that is why I choose to wait…
