gossamer moonlight casts odd shadows upon
the walls of the old nursery, where
childhood fairy tales once came true.

gossamer moonlight casts new light upon
the chewed ears of a ragged old bunny rabbit,
who once heard treasured little secrets.

gossamer moonlight casts wistful thoughts upon
a dusty old corner, where incomprehensible words
are etched in the dark ink of a fountain pen.

gossamer moonlight casts a sad spotlight
on the empty rocking chair, where joyful
evenings were once spent by the crackling fire.

gossamer moonlight casts sweet memories upon
the quiet room of no noise, reminding us of the
truth that forever is but a very short time.
