The moon looks down on me
His sweet face shining brightly
With a light that illuminates the darkness
That has surrounded my soul

It is not his fault that he dwells
In the night for he is a creature of habit
And knows no other time to shine
Besides that is when his friends the stars play

They sparkle and shoot all around
Throughout thw whole night long
If you look closely you can see
When they get together an image is formed

As the moon's light shines down on me
I feel myself being drawn to him
The beams of light cast a warm shadow
That covers my body with a soft glow

The moon is a gentle creature
Who watches over me while I sleep
Each night his smiling face
Looks down on me as I rest

lovely moonlit imagery in this LW...
very serene to read...very nice
a perfect tribute to our friend MR.MOON

take care, jm

 The stars shine so bright, now's the time
I close my eyes - soft wind touch my face,
Cool sand upon the place where I once kissed you
And held you close.
Now I will reach for the stars...
Because Oh my love, that's where you are...
Though the storms of black night rage on
I still see your face
I still feel your lips on mine
And though my heart feels all alone without you
I still hear you sing to me
I still hear your voice on the sea...
vertical horizon

LoneWolf~
I love a good poem about the moon.
The different ways we see it is
illuminating in itself.
You walked this one across the sky
with wonderful images.

Janet...thank you.  Just looked out the window the other night and it was like he was speaking to me.  Had to get it on paper.  

Marge....me too and you are very right.  Everyone sees it in a different light.  Thank you very much!!

Ah, the moon, without it what would lovers do?
Nice poem Lone Wolf!
