Jan 4
tonight the moon looks particularly big
I look up and smile
it feels so close but yet is so far away
I stand on my tiptoes and reach for the sky,
knowing full well that
I will never be able to reach it

to reach the moon
I will have to take great lengths
to reach there
I will have to change myself.
prepare myself for the trip up there
but it is so close

why can’t I just reach it?
why can’t it just come down here?

oh, how foolish of me to think this
something so beautiful could never
and would never come down here
especially for me

maybe I am not speaking of the moon
maybe I am speaking of you

but both things are so far away
I will never reach either of you
but honestly, id go to the moon and back for you.
