The freckled moon sits high above the earth,
Waiting for the sky to darken so he can come out of hiding
Sometimes he's impatient,
Revealing himself before he's needed-
Appearing at the same time as his brother, the sun
The earthlings beg the sun to stay,
Paying nearly no attention to the moon
The moon knows he isn't as well-liked as his brother-
He's aware that he'll always live in his shadow
After all, the sun is the star of the show
The earthlings hide when it's the moon's turn to play
That makes the moon sad
The earthlings call it a blue moon
And sometimes he gets shy,
Showing only a crescent of his face
The moon even gets jealous of the love his brother receives
But then he remembers-
Although the sun paints beautiful sunsets,
The moon reminds us that no matter what we go through,
We are never in complete darkness
