dear moon

swing down for me moon
lend me your ear
you have the advantage
of seeing everything so clear

on the nights that you shine
and so much is revealed
you notice my hopes
and all that I try to conceal

I plead with the night
and ask for one chance
to breathe once again
and return to the dance

and you listen to me
and you hold your breath
knowing the silence
brings me closer to death

but you already know
that my heart has died
when I accepted the truth
that was born from a lie

and I can hear you plead
to just let it go
as you see from above
and you want me to know

but you don’t live inside
my heart that’s grown old
that carries a heart
with a promise to hold

so forgive me, dear moon
but I need you to know
that despite no hope
I just can’t let it go

and that’s my life’s burden
that my soul found to bear
look upon me gently
as no love will ever compare
