Moonshine.

Here I am staring up
gazing at your glory.
Here without companion,
alone but ne’er lonely.

The splendor you bring
to this night sky.
Majesty and magnificence
nothing else can defy.

I close my eyes,
I make a wish,
hoping as I sleep
you’d keep me tonight.

For only in my sleep
do I feel your eyes on me.
I wander in my waking moments
as I ponder on what we could be.

Sitting here looking
for words to rhyme,
Waving up on you
on this dark grey sky.

Boast on your silver finish,
Keep on shining up high!
I’ve fallen in love with the moon,
That – I could never deny.

Moon.

At first glance,
I didn’t think much of you.
You were something new to me
I couldn’t care less what you do.

A few days went by,
No one has noticed you.
I’m not sure why,
for some reason people fear you.

A conversation’s transpired
between you and I.
One evening on a cloudless sky,
we saw each other eye to eye.

Then the moon became our center,
How we got there? I can’t remember.
We traveled the vast galaxies,
other worlds – the limitless light-years.

Caught with this connection,
that you and I never imagined.
Then something in me changed,
the moon became you instead.

Closer and closer
I got pulled in to your gravity.
And I wanted to stay
locked in your captivity.

Though, just like the moon,
you had to go away.
You’re up there now,
while here on Earth, I stayed.

月- Tsuki

High and Mighty
across the sky,
My thoughts are with you
day and night.
Aimed to reach you –
Be just like you.
I reached out and got you
Touched and caressed you.

High and Mighty
You’ve made me happy.
In the night I lay
You continue to guide me.
Protect and love me
You promised that, you see.
Yet I woke up today,
As sad as sad can be.

High and Mighty
Come out and see me.
Today your Love is avoud,
Why hide behind the cloud?
Where have you gone?
What have I done?
Reach you, I tried,
I fell down and cried.

Further and further
The moon has faded.
As I aimed to reach it –
Be just like it.
Day and Night,
My thoughts were with it.
Across the sky,
The moon – is now mighty high.

Waking Death

She didn’t want to look up,
but look up did she;
Only to see the moonlight
whose beauty shone upon thee.

Its face was so full
over the cloudless sky,
T’was accompanied with stars
that shimmered up high.

Overwhelmed was she
of that wondrous sight.
Yet she tumbled down trembling
of such great fright.

She feared for her heart
for her heart to be broken.
Coz she fell for the moon
with its moonlight aglowing.

She fell for the moon
coz to her it has shone.
Its beauty is what she saw
before death she’d been beckoned.
