Gary Alt: Listen

The Moon Is Broken Tonight

(©2011 Gary Alt)
Raise my eyes
see your smile
going ‘round in my head
Your light binds
her heart to mine
Words don’t need to be said

But you go on the wane too soon
Where are you, where are you?

The moon is broken tonight

So many nights
I would cry
as I waited for you
You found me
You found her
Painted something new

But the dream on the canvas faded
flame to blue
Where are you?

The moon is broken tonight

Nighttime falling
Luna’s blanket alights
over rivers that flow from empty hearts

The moon is broken tonight

The Moon Is Broken Tonight
