She darts in between the clouds
The hum of the city, soft and loud
Families going to bed, couples embrace
She shines through the curtains, soft and lace

I look up at you, you soothe and calm
A lover’s breath, comforting balm
The city slows, a kettle boils
Blinds are drawn, a cat recoils

Oh you noble moon, you blush tonight
My pillow soft, I feel no fight
A peace descends, my mind is still
I stare at you, drink my fill

The curtains dance, I feel your breath
I think of mum, my kids, my death
Tonight all my thoughts are soft and smooth
I shall miss you tomorrow, my blood red moon.
