Beauty Sleep

 
As I lay there sleeping,
she leaned in closer... 
I could feel her watching over me.
Her gaze was so intense
that it woke me up...
How did she get here?
How did she find me?!
Because of where my apartment
is located,
it is a total impossibility...
but there she was!
She was looking for me!
The moment I saw her,
I couldn't go back to sleep...
It seemed only minutes,
but we visited for hours...
There she was... smiling at me...
I could not believe that she came to me...
A feeling of complete surprise
filled my entire being with happiness and peace
just to see her there...
knowing that she had made a special trip
just to check in on me to see how I am doing...
It was as if she was saying,
How have you been?
Why haven't you come out to see me?
I have missed you...
Oh, I have missed you, too, my friend...
The alarm went off
but she did not leave.
The light of day
came through my window...
The people of the world were rushing
to be on their way...
but she was still there...
She didn't go away...
She continued to stay...
It was 7:00 and she was still there...
It was 7:30 and she was still there...
Oh, what a beautiful visit we had
until she finally went to sleep...
Thank you for visiting me,
my friend.
I promise I will visit you soon...
Mother Moon.
