I was talking to the moon
Just the other night,
Telling him how much
I admired his light;

And then without warning,
Much to my dismay,
The moon got all teary-eyed
And asked me to look away;

He said I had no idea
How lonely it gets up there,
Watching lovers all over the world
Every night of the year;

But he quickly recovered
And apologized in shame,
I told him I understood,
Loneliness was my middle name;

We exchanged our stories
Long into the night,
Then the sun came up
And the moon dimmed his light.

But I knew we'd meet again,
We share an emptiness,
And we both hide it well
Under the cover of darkness.

Now we meet each night,
The moon and I,
He seems happier now
From when I first saw him cry;

When I look at the sky,
He's the first thing I see,
And when he looks down,
I know he's looking at me.

And so it goes
Night after night,
I give him my company,
He gives me his light

    Loneliness chides the moon
    on empty nights in twilights gloom.

    very nice poem, reading these kind of poems makes me feel sad and lonely, but its so much better than feeling nothing at all.
