My Moon Prayer
January 30, 2010 § 5 Comments
Glorious Moon, King of the Stars,
Protector of the Night, Warder of Evil,
Listen to my plea.
Control my swaying heart
Like you control the waves of the ocean.
Guide my heart towards one firm direction.
Wash my love on the proper shore of
He who is most deserving.
With your light illuminate my blind eyes
So that I may recognize this chosen man.
Far beyond my knowledge of
Foolish love’s trials and tribulations,
Pull and push me with the knowledge
Of the heavens and lover’s wishes.
Provide clarity such as this night and
Point the way with all your subjects
Just as you navigate captains whose daylight confuses them.
My heart wavers, nervous and anxious of the break in the shore.
Cover me with your gentle light
Usher my eyes to behold the embrace of a man
Who the heavens have chosen for me.
