My Mourning Midnight Friend

My Mourning Midnight Friend

A Poem by Matthew R

Do you ever search the face of the moon and find it seems to have a face? A face made up of craters? Well... this is what I see in this face and I saw it when the moon was the closest to us.

My friend from oh so far,
the High Lord among the stars,
no shared words can we say,
we're too far away,
my friend is sadly a-far.

To me he often seems sad,
memories of the waking nightmares tired children have had,
however once in a while,
I believe I see him smile,
maybe a child's life has been pulled from the bad.

I often want to reach out and comfort him
but there are too many miles of air and space
separating him from my fingertips,
however it makes me more happy
when I see that rare smile
pass over his glowing white face.

I don't know if he can read the words I have written
or the expressions my gazing eyes say,
when I see his mournful eyes
it's little comfort I know
but my heart goes all the way.
