You are the Moon and I'm the Sun

You are the moon
And I am the sun,
Together we equal one.
We encircle each other,
Always ready to cast our graceful beams of lights onto the earth below.

Pick a side
before we divide,
You are the person of the night,
filled with terrifying delight,

and I am a person of the day,
filled with joy and rambunctious play,

Tomorrow will be better,
but not forever.

So let’s cherish the moon and sun,
Before our fun is done.
But life doesn’t always have to be this way,
We can simply find a way,
To continue our loving play
As the moon and the sun.

I love your poem! It works with opposites so well. It is light and playful yet your comments are so true. It can definitely happen. The poem is realistic and optimistic!
