~ She ~

Like the moon
She is distant and still
Solemnly guarding the misty sky

Like the sun
She is rising again
Shining its mercy on all that lives

Like the rain
She is steady and cool
Washing my face and consumed by earth

Like the wind
She is passing me through
Tracing my soul with a last good bye

Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur
