I am a journey to the moon, and a journey to the sky.

I think deep into my senses as winds glide by.

I storm through my past and I glide through my future.

I listen to each tale of my beloved, and the murmur of every creature.

I miss the chasm of the sun kissed water, and the shallow of its depth.

I know when the clouds hover my mountain, and when the sky wept.

You praise the lord for his benevolence touches your heart,

I complain to his abiding spirit that emanates through the weakest times of all.

Sometimes, it’ll wither, on some days it will stay strong.

I promise you this, it will not stay for long.

Keep tides in your heart, and moral in your mind.

As you my child, is the abode of love and a heart so kind.
