I awake with the dawn,
Look out into the pale blue sky,
And there shining on my life
I see the full moon shining brightly,
Heading towards the horizon.
Its job of keeping us safe,
Keeping us safe for another night,
Now at an end.
An end for us as it rises on others,
Keeping them safe in their night,
Looking down on them,
As it looked down on me.
