Oh beautiful and lonely moon

Oh, beautiful and lonely moon, You are the beacon of the night, Your presence helps define the sky With all the stars that float about you, And even though you are surrounded You cannot help But feel Like you're alone. Oh, beautiful and lonely moon, The only one you truly long for Does rarely share a sky with you, Your feelings towards her growing stronger While she just shies away in fear Of being open and sincere, She does not want to be perceived As not as strong As she would like to be. Oh, beautiful and lonely moon, There are no words that could describe How well I understand your feelings, We talk about it every night Like two good friends sharing their secrets, Looking upon you in the sky It's as if I can see your soul, Reflecting off your surface - light, It reaches me And pains my heart. Oh, beautiful and lonely moon, The thing that we share, you and I, The thing that binds us - hope. It might be coming from denial, It's desperate at times, Although, Without it I wouldn't feel Alive.
