Long Enough

And the moon stayed up long enough

To watch the morning sun rise

Only to face the inevitable good-bye



A weeping glow in the night

Guarded lonely hours of twilight

Tricked by the light of the stars

The moon was covered with open scars

Each engraved more of the story

Of leaving, of loving, of

A carved out tale told by the sky

Of the idea of a love that went awry


Which faded at night and rose in the morning

When the moon stayed up long enough

To watch the blinding rays shine

Then turned to face the inevitable good-bye.

Tricked by the light of the stars … awesome.
