Ask the Moon


Ask the Moon  


Will somebody ask the moon for me

 so that I may then know
Why those we love are swept away

from life that loved them so
Will someone speak in natures tongue

of why the wind does blow
For then perhaps we understand

where all our lost ones go
sweet sunshine shed a ray of light

on suffering and pain
Tell of who invented this

and what they had to gain

oh mystery please come to me

and break the clouds in two

shower me with clues

that they are taking care of you

each leaf I hold with seasoned change 

I dedicate to you

for every second owed to you

 I trace within the veins

for every tree that sways with me 

it rocks me lullabye

I hold you deep within my roots 

osmosis tears I cry

walk me through the seasons 

the textures of our earth

and fertilise the memories

that tomorrow will rebirth

You flower in the morning 

the evening and the whole

Together for

forever more

in spirit, heart and soul.
