Lonely Moon

The Moon will shine,
Without your smile,
But no longer shall it be,
A Moon that shines for me,
Gone are the days,
When you'd just stay,
So close, smiling at me.

The Moon is cold,
So I am told,
And winter's here for me,
When love is gone,
There is no Sun,
The Moon is all I see.

Oh lonely Moon, my lonely Moon,
Poor orphan in the sky,
Detached from mother Earth,
Your barren surface has no life,
No hope, no love, no mirth.

Oh Moon alone,
Made out of stone,
Rotating in the sky,
A phantom ship,
No life to grip,
No tears to even cry,
No one can feel your loneliness,
As deeply as can I.

Oh lonely Moon, my lonely Moon, Poor orphan in the sky, Such love poem like this I haven't read ever anywhere. The love story of the sun and the moon are profoundly expressed. The moon can't shine without sun is the fact that we all knew but you have painted the fact in such a way that when one will read think that a lonely love awaits for his lover from long time.You personified the moon as girl who is still and has no feelings to express.Great work.
