Lunar Lover

The moon followed me home tonight.
Can I keep it?
It's hanging around just outside
Lighting up the clouds.

Look at it, making patterns in the sky
Sharing light beams with Venus.
In the misty clouds it's twice normal size
Surrounded by a golden halo
It's full face shining with reflected glory.

The coyotes like it there
Hear them singing their songs of praise?
The owl hoots in harmony
While dogs bark the beat.

The moon followed me home tonight
Let me watch it
Following it's solitary path across the sky
Lighting up my heart.
