Walk softly into the night,
under the stars twinkling light.

Walk softly into the night,
beneath the pale moon's light.

Walk softly into the night,
let my courage replace thy fright.

Walk softly into the night,
let my heartbeat be thy guide.

Walk softly into the night,
let my love be your light.

Walk softly into the night,
my love awaits shinng bright.

Walk softly into the night,
but know that I am there
to hold you tight.

Walk softly into the night.

Betty, there are very nice emotions on display here and a peaceful calming effect that is very comfortable. Nice work.

This kind of brought to mind Dylan Thomas..."Do not go gently into the night..."
I liked the feel of it a lot.

 Don't ask me where I'm going, just listen when I'm gone and far away you'll hear me singing softly to the dawn.

This is absolutely lovely Betty!

Walk softly under the rain
Walk proudly forget the pain

the most important thing in this life is to keep walking
