Moon

Hello, old moon, my longtime friend Here we are, just you and me. As always, I am lifted up Deep into your depths again As if you watch my troubled world And come each night to soothe my soul Tonight I come to you again To make our long acquaintance new The world's off balance, I am too Yet, you are steadfast, as a friend In sorrow of my darkest hour You warm my face like midnight sun You comfort me and soon I know I'll always have a place to come You always seem to hear my pain When no one else can understand I know you well enough by now A secret's safe in your good hands Hello, old moon, my longtime friend Here we are, just you and me. As always, I am lifted up Deep into your depths again As if you watch my troubled world And come each night to soothe my soul ________________________ 4/23/13
