As night falls and the sky darkens
a cold moon climbs upwards
bathing the world
witb a chilly incandescent
I lie upon my empty bed
with memories of what we shared
once , long ago
before the cold moon shining raised its head.
I wonder if the dawn of day
will bring a change of heart
a change of thought
And dispel the winter chill that grips my soul
with cold moon shining in the dark.
