Missing Moonlight


What if 

There wasn't any moonlight

upon your face

There wasn't any peaceful shimmering glow

Only stars on the other side of midnight 

Your saddened heartbeat couldn't flow

What if

There wasn't any nectar of the

moons true beauty

 Such heartache you would know

No  moon beams  to  bathe your soul

Emptiness would certainly begin to grow 

What If

Your heartbeat lost its rhythm

As the missing moonlight ceased to flow

Then your heart beat would sigh 

Your love for the moon could never grow

  • Fay Slimm.

    Thanks for this bouquet of "what ifs" that remind us of gifts like the pale moonlight - -- a lovely read Dove.

    • Dove

      Thanks Fay! Indeed nature is a gift, and the moonlight no exception! Have yourself a Wonderful New Year

      But there are all of these things and more, for the moon has placed romance in our hearts and wherever we wander, whatever the story, whoever the boy and girl.... the moon shines within us.

        Thanks DA— Indeed romance blooms when the moon shines within

        Good write Dove.
        My poem went: 'I missed you, sweet moon, as I looked above' -
        it was the night of a full eclipse of the Moon. Doh! It just had to be me that looked for the moon on THAT night! lol.

            What if……? The most unanswered question ever asked.


            • Dove

              Indeed Andy, Happy New Year to you!

              The question of what ifs always dazed my mind
              But the connection of your what ifs to the cloud made it so special
              A wonderful read dear poet…
