Lost Without A Moon - Poem by Oscar Aceves

Where has this moon gone?
the moon that used to brighten up
the night sky,
And the moon that used to shine
Brighter than any star,
The moon that used to bring to me
This beautiful light,
For this moon used to lighten up
My heart,
Now that this moon is gone
I must rely on the stars
to bring me light,
This moon left me alone,
alone to suffer and think
empty thoughts,
And now i know that
I am lost,
Oh where has this moon gone?

    Life doesn't end with someone very special, we can pick other nice friends and remain happy with them as we enjoy a starry night when there is no moon. A lovely poem, best of luck to find a Venus on the skies. (Report) Reply

    Rely on the planets and the stars. It's also good to make the trip in daylight first before making it in the dark.

    I've been watching the moon for years, enjoying its stateliness, studying its phases and orbit. It appears that we lose the moon; we leave it behind, in the dust, so to speak.

    Lost Without Moonlight

    when lost
    the beauty
    of moonlight

    we must
    the beauty
    of a dark

    satin black night
    appreciating the dark
    of the solitary night

    we create our own light
    dance in the burning light
    we are moonlight radiant

    The poem unfolds a stage where life has gone into a long phase of loneliness and solitude. This is painful and heartfelt. (Report) Reply

    when lost without the beauty of moonlight, we must embrace the beauty of a dark satin black night, appreciating the dark of the night we create our own light (Report) Reply
