If the moon smiled, you would resemble her. Illuminating and whole, drawing me in with your openness in the loveliest of moments. Just a hint of light surrounded by darkness on other days when you say you have nothing to give and shut me out of your world.
The question always seems to be should I stay with someone so light and dark, so present and absent. The answer always seems to be to turn my focus away from you and observe the places where I am light and dark, present and absent. Will I continue to condemn those darker places within me or can I remain a constant, encouraging them to become more whole and full with my presence?
Our time together seems increasingly fleeting but what if this lesson of love and acceptance can stand the test of time. I can choose to love myself and others because of the varying degrees of sun and moon we have within us.
