A samurai, far from home, looks at the moon and thinks of his beloved.


Although the night divides us

And I am far from you, 

You do have one companion,

The moon, within your view.

Serene she glows above you

And watches while you sleep,

I tell her that I love you,

Imploring that she keep

Her gentle hand upon you

And bathe you in her light

Until the sun, returning,

Restores you to my sight,

My love, my gentle fire,

My joy and my desire.
