At first she was a glimmer

A mere spark across the sky

As day gave in to darkness

She held her head up high


Her fullness overcame the sea

It became merely her reflection

No longer could it hold her back

She could see from all directions


As she rose up to the highest point

The stars no longer bright

Her light was more than they could bear

This beacon of the night


She held me in the darkness

Her beams around my heart

She let me know that I’m alive

And that we would never part


Ultimately she will surrender

And allow the sun to have its day

As she awaits another night

When again she’ll have her way
