Brother Sun And Sister Moon - Poem by Kathryn Brookins
The warmth from your body keeps me warm all year long,
Even in winter, I sit in your rays and sing your song.
On the days you are hiding behind Brother cloud,
I cry out for you, with a voice, strong and loud.
Letting you know... I am here, I am here,
Let me feel your strength, from above, up there.
Sister Moon so gentle with her light,
In the darkness, she gives my eyes, sight.
I can see where I walk and bask in her glow,
feeling at peace, and whole.
Oh, wait... that was long ago....
Humans have ruined the safety of night, this I do know.
But it is nice to dream of the days that have past...
hoping they will return, soon, and at last.
Walking freely, with freedom at my back,
Open world before me, nothing to lack.
Being free, to walk, and to think,
To bath in the open springs and drink.
These are the days that have sadly gone by
making me wonder, 'why', Oh Sister and Brother, why?
We still can enjoy Brother Sun, in the day,
I hope it will always stay this way.
It is different, how we enjoy our Brother the Sun,
But on days that are ours, we can have some fun.
I will be greatful, to still have this,
and enjoy the memories, I dearly do miss.
