Faraway Moon

F a r a w a y   m o o n
as a young child
I could see your smile
taste your cheese
see your old man
touch you with my finger
.
F a s c i n a t i n g   m o o n
as a young adult
I could sense your pull
bathe in your romantic beams
pledge my love
reach for the stars!
.
M o s t   f a i t h f u l   m o o n
in my waning years
as life's orbit decays
I am in awe of your loyalty
amazed by your true colors
reassured by your changing tides
.
Continue to reflect life's light
as other young children
see your beautiful smile
taste your curious cheese
see your kind old man
touch you with their imagination...
.
Continue to inspire us
as other young people,
sense your magnetic pull
luxuriate in your romantic beams
pledge their undying love
explore the universe!
.
Most faithful, fascinating, faraway moon.
