Sir Moon

I peeked out my window.
In the corner was the moon.
I turned away for a second.
It was gone so soon.
Yes, I sighed in despair,
Looking away again.
Yet the moment I glanced back,
The moon did grin.
Back and forth the moon would play.
The clouds were such a tease,
But to have a sense of humor
Made it such a sight to see.
Good-night, Sir Moon.

For What Reason

For what reason do I care?
     You tell me.
For what reason do I cry?
     Can’t you see?
For what reason do I call?
     Can’t you hear?
For what reason do I visit?
     I want you near.
For what reason do I stay?
     It’s all I want to do.
For what reason do I live?
     Because I love you.
