And the Moon Is Full Tonight

And the Moon is Full Tonight

Many star-filled summer nights,
moonlight dancing my love and I,
the memories fill my very soul –
as jasmine scent wafts in the air
and the moon is full tonight

Now quiet nights spent dreaming,
the shadow of your smile,
the moon reflecting,
hearing your name upon the wind,
wondering what star you’re swinging on,
knowing you are ever near
and still to me so dear.

Stormy nights.
as clouds play shadow games,
with the bright moon above,
I often wander in my thoughts,
remembering your smile.
The celestial orbs in the sky,
reflect your smile to me,
songs come to mind,
that we danced to
and went promenading among the moonbeams.

These are my memories,
that get me through my days
and when the night comes,
I look out my window,
if I see a silver glow outside,
I hurry out to see the magic,
looking up into the night sky,
seeing the twinkling stars,
perhaps this night,
you’ll come to me –
because the moon is full tonight,

These memories never leave,
I know up along the Milky Way,
you wait for me,
I will keep a vigil through the summer nights,
daydreaming by the roses,
that in the garden grow.
Whenever I imagine you near,
I know you’re thinking of me,
so even though I go on alone,
you’re ever near
and I’ll be remembering you, remembering me
and the moon is full tonight…

    Beautiful and so romantic. I could visualize dancing with the one I loved under the moonlight with a smell of Jasmine in the air. Thank you Rasma. Jamie

      I am glad you enjoyed this poem Jamie. It was inspired from all the magical night when the garden I had in Lativa looked silvery beneath the full moon.
