IF THE MOON COULD TALK…
“It’s been so long since you’ve last crossed my path
Who are you?
I can feel your warmth radiate with brightness into the cold, dark universe
Leaving tired eyes and glowing skin.
I chase you, hoping to find a place in your light of positivity and possibilities
You tease me with a taste of your morning rays.
I watch as you rise, bringing a new day to all
It’s a new day, and another night gone, you leave me forgotten; over shadowed.
I envy the way they welcome you, with open hearts and open eyes.
& When you go, they wave goodbye and follow you to the end of the world.
I chase you, hoping to be apart of the bright world you bring
Never catching up, and always left behind.
Finally, I can feel our distance between one another getting shorter,
My surface getting warmer.
And now it is time,
The world is waiting.
As if the world stopped, I linger and bask in your presence.
Your glow so intense, I realize how gravely mistaken I was.
All the times I felt less significant than you,
You were really showing me my self worth and how significant I really am.
As you provide life to day, you have helped me provide life to night.
Anything that flows needs balance.
I now remember, why they have such love for you
I too, am filled with your love and warmth, ready to take on another night, with your light that never fades.
Thank you, Sun.”
