Faraway Moon

F a r a w a y   m o o n
as a young child
I could see your smile
taste your cheese
see your old man
touch you with my finger
F a s c i n a t i n g   m o o n
as a young adult
I could sense your pull
bathe in your romantic beams
pledge my love
reach for the stars!
M o s t   f a i t h f u l   m o o n
in my waning years
as life's orbit decays
I am in awe of your loyalty
amazed by your true colors
reassured by your changing tides
Continue to reflect life's light
as other young children
see your beautiful smile
taste your curious cheese
see your kind old man
touch you with their imagination...
Continue to inspire us
as other young people,
sense your magnetic pull
luxuriate in your romantic beams
pledge their undying love
explore the universe!
Most faithful, fascinating, faraway moon.
