Fly noble falcon, soar among the stars
Fly to him who holds my heart this night
Let the winds guide you in your flight
To the safety of his arms

Shelter him with night's protective cover
Protect his life and guide his way
So that he may see the light of day
And come to know the face of I, his lover

Fly noble falcon, sing of this lonely Star Maiden
Tell him the one whose heart he now holds
Was once sad, hard, and cold
And very much with bitterness laden

But now noble Falcon, sing to him of my love
A love as far reaching as the galaxy
And as deep and silent as the sea
With his heart I will always be, keeping him safe from above.

Yes, Sven, lovely, but I've yet to see anything written by you that wasn't.
