rest your head on the moon

it was striking
over the valley
into your home
away from me
peering

i was under
hidden away
making shadows
in candlelight
anxiously

did you look
above the rooftops
in the distance
eyes wide
wondering

could you feel it
at arms reach
so close
so cold
shivering

i failed you
i wanted more
to grab it
tuck it beside you
comforting

but it remains
in the night sky
far above
leaving your bedside
shining, alone
