Night and Day


You sense impending doom
Seeing your worlds collide.
Feeling the wrath of hell
Coming down on your hide.

Itís all in your perception
Itís easy enough to change
Youíve placed us in the heavens
All you have to do is rearrange.

Let her be your sun, your center
Around which your world revolves.
Putting her in her proper place,
See how much it solves?

Iíll be your moon in orbit
Let me be your muse.
Iím here to inspire and comfort
No need to be confused.

Feel the driving force of her fire
I know she has many demands.
She pushes you to your limits
Sheíll make you a better man.

Iím the night to her day,
Come bask in my lunar glow.
Bathe in my moonlight,
Discover the truths you know.

Are you ready to leave the light?
Cast darkness upon your home?
Relax in my presenceó
Youíll find the answers on your own.

It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Terrific, Tara. You have words of wisdom here. You would be a wonderful moon for anyone, I'm sure.
