Short Talk With The Moon - Poem by Aditi Khandelwal

I looked out of the window
And saw such a beautiful sight
The moon smiling at me oh!
His smile lights up the dark night.

I playfully smiled at him and
Asked ‘Why you stay awake all night? '
He looked at me, his smile a bit dim
‘Then who will ensure that you sleep tight? '

Still not convinced, I asked yet again
‘Don't you get bored on a lonely night? '
‘No never! I always have snores of men
To keep me company and your lamp light! '

He then said, ‘Now you sleep little girl,
When you wake up, I won't be here.
I will be on the other side of the world,
But I will keep an eye on you from there! '
