Today I woke up too early
Staring at the morning sky
The cloud was thick like fields of barley
I paused and wondered why.
Yesterday she graced the skies
My lovely tender lily
Like a queen to all the stars
Why is she not up early?
Sometimes my Moon has a mood
Sometimes in silence she stood
Those times I’ll let her just be
I’ll be patient like the sea.
I’ll wait for you My Moon to shine
I’ll stare into the skies
I’ll beg that Time let you be mine
In love our heart it ties.
I’ll be the sun that gives the light
I’ll put on you a smile
Until you beam right in our sight
And then we’ll learn to fly…
