Moonlight Memories

I stood on a rocky beach in Maine
Watching the horizon when the evening light began to wane

The sky was darkening, bringing with it a bristling chill
But my soul wanted more, to reach further still

My eyes twinkled like the stars above
And within I knew that the night held a hidden love

My gaze was fixed on the subtle ripples
Making the water look like it had dimples

A little while after, the tide rolled out
Leaving me behind in a world full of doubt

My thoughts reached far into the depths of my memories
Pulling me into a state full of reverie

I was left with only the twinkling night stars
And the peaks of looming mountains looking down from afar

My heart ached to be rid of this loneliness
But the night pulled me into its soothing caress

This made me linger for a moment longer
For it made me search deeper, look yonder, feel stronger
