So often as I lay awake
Watching the moon wax and wane
I cant help but think of my many mistakes
All the things I’ve caused
All the death and pain
All the unmitigated suffering
Driving me insane
How long have I lain
Just watching the moon
Her beauty unfeigned
Her soft glow a lullaby
Until the day came
Just lay there and be
Nothing to think or say
Letting my thoughts delay
Not regrettably deferred
Just a word
Could bring me back to day
So forever I could lay
Never seeing the day light
A never ending night
The moon providing warmth
Ever banishing day
So often
So often I lay awake
Watching the moon wax and wane
Utter silence
And blissful defiance
As I lay
Just forever lay
Not a word to say
And forever watch
The moon wax and wane
