Just The Moon (poem)

Updated on August 15, 2015

What did he say that made her leave

What was the reason they now grieve

What heartaches didn’t he perceive

What moment lost could he retrieve

Or was it just the moon


Their kisses flowed like any day

In Joy their time was swept away

There wasn’t cause to fear dismay

When suddenly she couldn’t stay

And there it was the moon


He cried as she passed through the door

You’re leaving tell me I implore

She didn’t turn to tell him more

But left some teardrop on the floor

While walking toward the moon


What was this pain he never knew

Where his mind slipped he had no clue

His conscience groans what did you do

Some soft replies she feels it too

As he’s caught by the moon


So many years did he befriend

And still some scars will never mend

There in the moon some time he’ll spend

To listen why their love did end

It was just in the moon

Music only

      You have been able to express such deep questions that many of us ponder as life moves through us and cycles onward without a full understanding of the answers which are often hidden or erased in time.

      Although the moon is usually a romantic backdrop, you have used it as a setting for deeper meaning still. Beautiful, deep, and a bit sad. Truly a well written thought.

      Mhatter - Just a beautiful rendition. So often we stop and wonder what we could have done differently or what we did do to make it different.

      How many broken hearts have asked the same question - "was it just the moon?". Beautifully sad and poignant my friend.
