"Moonlight Blues" (poem)

The Think Tank Thursday #87: Moon
(a visual prompt from Poets United)

I wrote this a long time ago, almost twelve years, the prompt made me remember and dig out this poem.  A little melodramatic perhaps :-), but it was written with a lot of heart.

I dedicate this to all women, of all ages, nationalities, and countries, whether or not they celebrate March 8th - may your moonlight blues be dispelled, may your light shine brightly, may faith, hope, and love  sustain you always, and may you be rescued from the dragon's tower by a brave knight worthy of your golden heart!

~ Moonlight Blues ~

The moon is full above,
I’m feeling blue,
When life is sad, my love,
I think of you.

You come to me, my knight,
You take my hand,
You help me through the night,
By me you stand.

You tell me all, my king,
I need to hear,
When silence starts to ring,
When dawn is near.

My fate, my faith, my hope,
My sacred light,
With anything I’ll cope,
Just hold me tight.

The moon is full above,
The night is long,
I dream of you, my love,
For you I long.

Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur


  1. I would love to hear this sung by Sinatra or Willie Nelson. Bittersweet.

    1. Janet, how did you do that? How did you manage to leave a comment so quickly? I just posted this... A mystery. The Moon must be helping you out :-)

      Thank you for the kind words.

  2. What a beautiful love poem, this is just excellent.

    1. Thank you, I thought maybe it was a bit cheesy, but I guess it's not so bad!
      Any chance it could become a song?.. :-)
