The Earth pulls the apples off trees,
The Moon tugs the tides to and fro.
Gravity pulls us closer,
When I don’t think my eyes can open more,
your gaze beckons me to see.
From across the miles,
I hear you whisper my name.
When you’re traveling with others, laughing,
the corners of my mouth turn up in a smile.
draws us to each other.
So many moons have I watched rise in the sky thinking of you.
Tonight, I want you to be my moon.
And I want you to stay shining at me for a very long time.
