When I Bid Farewell To The Moon

December 24, 2010
I say farewell to the moon




As it comes time for me to rest


Clear my mind of all worries



Try not to remember anything



Falling… falling… falling




Into the deepest sleep





I am once again awaken





By the sound of a babies cry



This gentle sound soothes me



But worries me also






I struggle out of bed






Open the window and listen



The temptation overcomes me



And I jump









Begin to run with the wind




Away from the buildings




Across the roads







Past the forest








Over the river








The baby lets out one more screech

Saying my name







Save me…









Save me…









Down to the ground I go




Tears rolling down






Voices all around me





I gaze up at the night sky




And watch it change colors



Here I am









Here is my destination





I absorb my surroundings





Step by step

Moving closer

The cry comes to hault

Time freezes

The earth stops moving

Here I am to come across

A soft grassy field

With nothing in sight

But an enormous tree

With sparkling leaves

And twinkling branches

Closer and closer

I know I am forbiden

Forbiden to continue

But closer and closer I go

A shadow runs

Time unfreezes

The earth begins to spin again

My blood turns cold

I begin to dash

As fast as I can

Over the river

Past the forest

Across the roads

Into the buildings

Climb through the window

And back to rest

Again to start a new night

When I bid farewell to the moon
