Lambast The Truth And Make It A Lie - Poem by Leslie Alexis

O sky,
Why weren't the Moon and Sun
Born together
So these many rays would not waste?
O Sun,
Why your impatient haste to bloom,
Why wouldn't you wait for the moon?

O rain,
Why didn't the lightning wait
For its thunder,
So that sound and sight could be one?
O rain,
Restrain Lightning's abominable quest for fame,
Make its own, and Thunder's, appearance the same!

Lambast the truth and make it a lie,
So it must be, for I will not say goodbye.
For Her's, the most tender love is given at will,
And not even death could cause its holding to nil.
Let me be your sun, and you, forever my moon.
My life hangs on hope of an eclipse coming soon.
My love, take all the light that I have to give,
For without you, only part of my life do I live.
So, lambast the truth and make it a lie,
For without you, I swear, I'll surely die.
