A Moon for You

A Moon for You
If I had it in my power,
I would get the moon for you
after just a normal shower
in a day or maybe two.

Because it is just like your smile
shining brighter than a star,
and just like you for still a while
it lives so very far.

But the moon is too important
to let me live my life with you
because it’s there for all the constant
movement on our planet, too.

So I leave it at its place
and admire all its light
up there with the stars in space
to think of you at night.
