Moment Of Goodbye - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

This wonderful moment of beautiful time,
Ending of night we feel and we feel light,
Still you shine in horizon as usual in love,
Dear moon, we feel your glitter of happiness.

You have served for Earth selflessly ever,
Whenever you get opportunity you grow,
You decay with time's impact gradually,
Life and death is deeply philosophical.

From crescent to full and from full to crescent,
You grow and decay in this process of life,
But you never lose your degree of calmness,
Still your calm light shines with brightness.

In this forest we grow and keep new hope,
We are plants with leaves and flowers,
We have grown wild to say you goodbye,
Moment of light at dawn we welcome.

Moment of goodbye is sorrowful of course,
For renewal of life this is only the path,
Losing this day you do not lose identity,
We too take birth and die in this deep forest.

    And, of course, the Moon will return again tonight, so it's really only a temporary 'goodbye.'
    I like this poem so much more than your Poem of the Day. I think that this one should be the Poem of the Day, but it was only written today, so it is too new. Perhaps in the future?
