Sunshine Lost - Poem by Nicky McNeil

As I saw you I knew
In that one moment in time
I became as the Sun shining
High in the sky, burning hot with love
Warm and bright,
With the energy your love gave me
You set me in motion in the Universe
A purpose, a reason to be.

As I looked at you
You became the moon
My Lady, my love
The brighter I shined
The more you glowed
You served well your purpose
To light my dark nights
With mystical light that filled my soul

The stars in the sky
Became as our children
Each bright and shining
Dancing, soaring, seeking, guiding
Each one their own Universe
Yet in ours as well
Always small to us
Giants in their own realm

But as all dreams, this one fades
I had not really became the Sun
I was but a lonely meteorite
Aimless and lost
That glanced across the sky
In your galaxy
Seeking a place to land
And a world and heart to call home.

In your atmosphere, in your love
I was as warm as the Sun
But when you turned away
And left me alone in the sky
I became what I always was
Burned up dust, floating alone
In the cold dark emptiness of space
That once was my soul.
