Lady Moon, Lady Moon
You’ve seen the rise and fall of nations
Hearts broken and children born
Fortunes made and families torn
You see the mysteries of the darkness
And you are not afraid

Lady Moon, Lady Moon
Why be so sad so soon?
Your children have fallen
But so many still rise
Dazzling the mortals
With their brightness in the skies

Lady Moon, Lady Moon
Do not hide in the cloudy cocoon
The world needs you
Your children cannot bear your burden

Lady Moon, Lady Moon
Come out and lay
On your favorite velvet blanket
Sprinkled with diamonds
Your beauty is unparalleled
Do not listen to those fools
Who worship your brother
The vain sun

Lady Moon, Lady Moon
Oh benign goddess
How I love
How you kiss my cheek each night
With your soft gentle light
Your brother is so harsh and burns my delicate skin

Lady Moon, Lady Moon
Do not forsake me
In my time of need
You have been there for me
When the sinners have not

Lady Moon, Lady Moon
You are so pure
As if carved of marble
By the great creator’s swift hands
After many millennia
But you remain the same

Lady Moon, Lady Moon
Please don’t ever change

Amazing! I love how you praise the moon. I love the sun too, but the moon is more beautiful. Wonderfully written, I like how you use your words!

I love this and as I fellow night creature I applaud your creativity. The moon has always filled me with creativity, but it all gets muddled in the speed of my thoughts and nothing gets written. Excellent.
