To Blame The Moon

When the waning moon is but a sliver 
does it kiss the sky good-bye,
and when the night is at it’s darkest, 
does it breath a heavy sigh 
and blame the moon for leaving it 
alone with the twinkling stars?

And once the radiant orb swells again
illuminating the black obsidian sky 
do silvery stars and lonely night in unison
forgive the roaming moon and welcome back 
their dear old friend as if he never left?
