No crickets serenading
No dogs howling
Even the clouds seem to be still.
The moon left the sky, leaving it bare
The stars don’t sparkle as much
They’re not dancing tonight.
No cats meowing
No frogs croaking
The night is still.
The night fell silent as the moon rose alone
The stars did not come out, they left the moon on its own.
I took a cup of sunset and sipped it like coffee
Taking in the days labor and now feeling sleepy.
A pillow to keep company and to rest my tired head
Off to dreamland I go as I lay still in bed.
Getting ready for bed, all excited and dandy
I can finally rest my head on soft pillows I have handy
I peep through the window and something caught my eye
Something beautiful that I cannot deny
The moon smiled but with a different color
It smiled bright red, that I’m sure
I smiled back, silently thanking for a good night.
Alone with the stars tonight
I hear the echoes of the clear night sky
They whisper to me
While I sing silently to their beauty
PS. I don’t own the photo. CTTO
On a full moon with clear skies,
You’ll see me hopping around the moon.
Silently watching the world from space
Silently bidding people goodnight.
Many call out to the man on the moon
While I am all but forgotten.
Hold me like holding the stars in the palm of your hands.
Let me trickle down your arms.
And gaze at me like you gaze at the night sky.
Let me lie in your arms like the sun sets at the end of each day.
Love me like tomorrow will never come.
Every now and then I stop and look at the stars
Always in awe as if I’ve seen them for the first time
I do wish to see the aurora borealis someday
But the stars, they are like diamonds to me
I saw the moon tonight
I feel peace rush over me
I wanted to hear its serenade
But the evening traffic forced me to bid adieu
The day the sun went down,
It never came back up again.
The world was dark say for the stars and the silent moon
But their light was faint.
“Goodbye”, said the sun
And it set forever, never to return.
