Keep Me Safe


Are you looking at the moon
as I look at the moon?
Do you see the same face as I?
Will you make the same wishes,
dream the same dreams;
is you destiny entwined with mine?

Although the fullest is as predictable as time,
do we each interpret it in kind?
Or are your hopes on a parallel path,
never to catch up with my mine?

I wish upon the shimmering orb,
a face as old as God;
I see the features carefully etched,
never changing or fading away,
and I pray a chant from childhood days,
“Pretty moon, please keep me safe.”
