Moony reflections

As much as the darkness of the night can be awful;

I’m not scared of it as it approaches;

Because I can count on the moon;

To light up the sky;


Soft is its light;

But bright enough it is to light my path;

No matter how far I walk;

I find it right in front of me;

As if it is moving with me;

Keeping me company;

Till I get home;


Whiles the sun’s energy has the tendency;

To make me hyper, bubbly and even aggressive;

The caresses of the moon on my face;

Renders me sober, calm and reflective;

As the noise of the world simmers down into hushed tones;

And all the loud voices and thoughts in my head go to sleep;

I am tempted to worry about what becomes of me;

When the sun comes back up the next morning;

But the moon soothes my mind;

Reminding me to be grateful for the day;

As tomorrow’s issues will take care of themselves;


Just as the moon’s existence makes the night less scary;

And can be counted on to show up when you need it to;

It reminds me that no matter how terrible situations become;

I have Someone to count on to show up to see me through;

Just as the moon moves with me with every step in the night;

The Creator of the moon is with me through thick and thin;


So there’s nothing to worry about;

As long as there’s the option to pray about it;

If the moonlight can calm my nerves;

Then God can calm my troubled heart;

If I can trust the moon to appear in the sky;

Then what stops me from trusting that;

God will be by my side when life takes a dark turn?


I’m grateful for the moon’s prompt response to darkness;

But I’m even more grateful for God’s sure presence;

To keep me company when I feel most helpless.


What does the moon teach you?
