Treasure Island

manar mostafa

(10/3/1990 / cairo, EGYPT)

Between me & the moon

Stars I see, bright in the sky
stares at me with a wonder in the eyes
asking me for a wish to make it come true

The moon warns me, don't listen to the stars
too high it takes you, you are down before you realize
I smile and say too many wishes my heart wishes for
to all this come true, I am not that sure

To be withdrawn to the stars, that's no choice
so hard I tried to resist but they seem to have the force
the moon sigh and say to resist that's only a way
following the stars is an order your heart seems to obey

I do trust my heart, I'll do whatever it says
you are on your own now don't say I didn't lighten up your way
lighten up my way you did, I'm wiser than before
but I still wanna make a wish for something I'm looking for

To be with the stars that is so great, you can't deny that
I warned you that's what I say, you can count on that
kisses in the air for the moon up there
thank you for everything, to deny it I don't dare.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
