Are You Moonsome Tonight? - Poem by David Taylor

What could I give you?
Would you ask for the moon?
Do you need it, to feel you are free?
Some say moonshine is the way,
for others moonstone’s the key,
so soothing it can banish your stress.

Oh how we love to look at the moon,
and let it wisp us away,
from our earth bound dismay and distress.
In a crescent or spherical form,
It can transform our fears into bliss.

So give me a place and a time,
where the moon,
It does shine,
and the moonshine
we drink deep with a kiss,
and all that’s around
is transformed by its light,
to a moonstone kind of softness.
And together we’ll fly into the night
on a moonbeam of heavenly bliss.

    Sentiments are beautifully expressed! Better than the song of Elvis.
    You will love reading 'Moon Kiss' by Suzanne Case in Boloji.com - poetry section.

    It's a lovey poem, David. It has imagery with that all-too-rare connection to emotions the other person is feeling. Besided, I'm a big believer in moon therapy
