Poetry : You Are My Sunshine

Updated on April 9, 2011

Stars of love light the night sky, side by side as the moon unwindes.
She see's the love the stars can offer yet she remains alone.
Her bright glow outshines the stars, she is seen both near and far.
Yet only one can light her glow, only one, she really knows.
The stars will dance, shoot and form yet she looks away.
For her eyes remain on the only star that seems to light her way.
It keeps her glowing when night seems at its darkest.
Even when she hides, it still manages to see her on the other side.
When she is only half awake, it still conforts her glowing face.
No other star can replace what she feels at night.
Even all alone she sits, glowing in illuminious light.
Waiting for the day she will get the courage to make a move.
Covering the stars light for only herself.
Yet once she does she must move on.
For this stars light, outshines all the stars.
She loves him so, yet he will never know...
The joy he brings her each night, as she lights the sky with her glow.

**Some will understand this poem some will not, it's about the moon and the sun's friendship. She loves him for all he does but can't keep him for herself. So they remain friends and she remains happy for him, yet loves no other star. If you have a friend you love, but fear telling them how you feel, take the chance! You never know, he/she may secretly be in love with you too!**

      Beautiful poem and lovely sentiment, Brittles. I wish I had thought of it first. :0)

      Unfortunately for me, the only ones in love with me are bill collectors, so....

      Best wishes, behave, and be well - C.J. Sledgehammer

      P.S. Apparently this poem was published 13 months ago, which adds to the ever growing #13 phenomena in my life. :0)

      P.S.S. Did the number 3 ever leave your hand?

      Voted up and away!!!

      Thanks for the comment katenka_lalo and yes thats what the poem is about! admiring love from a distance because sometimes friendship is more important.

      The poem is awesome. The thing is, some people feeling happier being far away and loving the ideal of the person rather than getting close and find out what the person is truly like.
