An Invitation

An Invitation

A Poem by shockandawe

I'll sit and watch the night go on without you
The moon smiles for she knows what the future holds
Stay calm, don't be alarmed
No one will be harmed
As long as you hold on to yesterday
The sorrow will not go
Watch it as it grows

Sounds of light, fear, and darkness
Let me know whats in store
I hope it's not a bore
There's so much more than what you've heard before

Won't you stay and watch the day grow dark with me
That's all I really ask
Just a little company
We could watch the stars have an epiphany

The moon is watching over us
The mountains linger in the shadows
Hovering and covering their need to be known
Goodbye clouds and goodbye sun
Tomorrow'll be another one

Thank you!!
we find our own moments that make life bearable, but then our thoughts turn to sharing them with someone. Even if we got a rule book in this life, it would probably be written in a language we don't know.
It seems to me that life is an eternal puzzle and we can only try to get the next piece in place. What are we missing when we concentrate so hard on that next piece? We can but hope the picture becomes clearer with each piece we fix in place.
Thought provoking words.

She's always there. She's never busy. She always has an open ear :)
