My Man in The Moon

I see you perched upon my branch

Why do you haunt me so?

Child, I am not here to haunt you

Merely to lead you in the right direction

It has been years since we last spoke

You were troubled

Moon I am still troubled

I am lost in a sea of emotions

I feel as if my life is not my own

My love, I know all this

That is why I am here

This branch that I sit on is my hand reaching out to you

Grab hold

What if I fall

What then

I am afraid to take that step

I am afraid to climb up

Then I will be here to pick you up

And carry you to heaven with me

And then you can truly touch the stars

You do remember my one true wish

To touch the stars

To be among the heavens, to write

I am here as your stepping stone

I can only bring you up one step

The rest is up to you, to climb your way to the top

Now grab hold

And if I fall off

If I fail

If I am not good enough to sit among the stars

You still don’t see it

You are good enough

All you need is faith and you will prevail

You have the determination

You just need the courage

Man in the moon be my guide

I will take hold of your branch

I will climb

Then come, my child,

Let’s not haste

Your place awaits you among the stars

Grab hold of your pen

This I promise you

I will take hold

My pen shall flow with soulful words

My pages shall never be blank again

At one time or another, we must all choose our paths

We can steer our lives to where we want to go

We all control our own destinies

Grab hold of your branch and climb the tree to your future

Sit with me among the stars, and smile with my man

The man in the moon

He is waiting

I’m a writer… I love to write! I’ve been writing since I was eight years old. I can’t imagine life without stories. My life, and your life it’s a story that we are writing everyday.
