A friend of mine posted a photo of the super pink moon and captioned it, “I rise with the moon”. I thought that it would be a great title for a poem. So here goes…
The sun dips in the horizon while the moon is slowly rising
And with it my soul awakens.
The darkness stretches, as do I…
The world would have been blanketed by darkness except the moon was shining bright.
I shine my own smile back to the moon and together, hand in hand, we light up the night sky.
The moon was big and bright yellow
And around it was a halo.
It kept a watchful eye on me, as I walked that early morning.
Hues of orange splash the sky
Splattered like magnificent painting greeting the early commuters off to work
I sigh a little as I saw only a glimpse of it
I wanted to pause the moment before the busy day and just bask in awe under it
The sun showing its glow but not quite the full show
I take a photo of it in my mind and I smile inwardly thinking how beautiful the day will be
Your eyes used to shine bright
But where is the shine now?
And you used to smile with such delight
But it left you somehow.
I wonder why you lost your spark,
I hope you find it again.
I pray you get out of the dark
Come back, let’s begin.
I took out the stars for you
Pulled them close so you could hold on to them,
See their beauty up close.
Let the light shine upon that rugged face
Feel the warmth of their light and let it be your guide.
You belong with the stars, love
So don’t forget to shine.
Down and lost
You feel like quitting.
I see your pain, though you hide it.
Yet even in moments when everyone lost hope on you
Every moment of sadness
You reach for that glimpse of glory.
You are the best when you are defeated
Because it is in those moments, you show that you can still shine.
We are stars in the galaxy
Each one truly far way from the other
Yet we let our light shine bright enough
So those we love dear can still see us
For a love would never bloom if it never had the chance
Like sunlight would never shine with just a single glance
That’s how it was when I loved you
When I thought I loved you
But that was just a thought
The sky is full of bright lights
Oh the stars, they watch tonight
They hide their twinkle for the night
They watch is awe to what the world has to offer
For tonight, the show is for them
They watch the fireworks work its magic
As they take a bteak from shining and become the spectators
