Stretching beyond her reaches
As she glides momentously across the long stretch of land
Happy as she watches over her silent world
Living the perfect dream.
Night wound around her like a gown
Looking down on pale yellow skin
She dreamt of seeing daylight.

Tune into silence would she
On her duty at night
Without a care in the world
As she floats across the night sky
And if she was ever upset
It would all melt away here
Never bored,
She would caress the night like a feather
Wrap her fingers around invisible air.

But come morning again
Sun brightening up the world
He would broadcast himself
Way up high in the sky
Taking over the night.
Sulky became the moon
Her night was suddenly over
She felt tears
Spilling down her face
For split seconds as she faded
Into the shining light
Of the sun.

Thinking as she declined
Of what it would be like
To be the sun
Blazing light all the time
Then she sank down
Into the depths of the Universe
Until night comes again.
