By the Light of the Moon

br

We're different, not the same,

Yet somehow similar.

I a girl, you a guy,

Yet we both enjoy reading,

Composing poems, songs.

br

You've perfected your 'poker face,'

Never hyper,

Never out of control.

Yet I'm stuck with aces around,

And you can tell

By the look of ecstasy on my face.

br

You can't wait for the musical--

My lifeline-- to be over.

Yet I wish it were a long time ago,

Way back when,

Back when we started.

br

Started to dance,

Started to sing,

Started to get to know the people around us.

Started to realize

Realize what good friends we have in each other.

br

Time flies when you're having fun,

Yet this month seems to have reached warp speed.

It seems like only yesterday

We were sitting in the chorus room singing,

Laughing,

Talking.

br

Sometimes it feels so awkward

To be around you.

And you must feel the same about me

If not more.

br

Sometimes we don't communicate,

Sometimes we just don't care.

Yet when the weather is fair

And our separate lives have gone well,

We are united.

br

United in the music,

United in the poem,

United in all the good times

And the bad.

br

I don't know about you,

But I feel

That even though we are sometimes different,

Our friendship reaches down,

br

Down into the depths of the ocean,

The core of the earth,

The core of our hearts.

It may not seem like we have much to grasp,

But we do.

br

And I think

That as long as we know each other,

That we could never stay angry

At least I couldn't

As you very well can see.

br

So as the sun of the play is setting,

I feel a new moon rising

In the horizon of my heart.

That moon is our friendship,

And it shall stay in the sky.

br

And we shall be friends,

Wandering,

Talking,

Forever,

By the light of the moon.
