My Gracious Moon..


When the beautiful night unveils with darkness
I look for you in the starry sky above
And I find you glancing through the clouds
You feel so close yet so far, my love

Everything about your existence is amazing
The waning gibbous, the waxing half moon
And the solitary crescent, I have always been praising
But I adore the most, the gracious full moon

When everything shines in your silvery light
And only the outlines highlight in your presence
When the charmed ocean dances every night
Babbling and celebrating your eternal essence

And as the dawn makes its way with a light
I shall wait for the night to see you again
The world of night is a beautiful sight
'Cause of you, my wandering gracious moon...

  16. I feel kind of silly because until the last stanza I thought this was a love letter to your missing sweetheart. I mean I like to look at the moon at night and think that it's the same moon that my sweetheart sees on the other side of the world.
