Lunar Reflections

by CD Richards

 
Behold the moon—our beacon in the sky.
When full, it's claimed the inner beast shall wake.
The pull exerted as it wanders by
does tidal waves, upon this planet, make. 

Each man and woman's such a satellite,
our actions guiding others on the way.
If we can conjure daytime from their night,
they feel our loss each time we go away.

And yet, the moon lacks light to call its own;
but harnesses the power of the sun.
Without a greater source, it's all alone—
a sad and lifeless body on the run.

How empty and how dark my world would be
without your warmth and light to comfort me.
