In the Warmth of the Night

In the warmth of the night
I can hear the katydids
Playing their song
In the wee hours of the night


I love summer nights
Where the air feels heavy
But more comfortable
Than the day


When many people have gone off to bed
Sleeping in their warm comforters
Throughout the world
It’s just you and me love


Staring at this moon together
We know it’s late
But we love being together
In the thick but welcoming summer air


I know you are going away
Like a caboose ready to ride
The straight and narrow
Please don’t forget me


I know I’ll never forget
Your half-moon smile
And twinkling star eyes
Summer will always be in my heart
