The Moon and the Star

You are the Moon

I am the Northern Star

 

They need you close

to pull their tides

to change their course

and light their nights.

 

They need me far

not to light their way

but to guide their shipd

'til break of day.

 

They need your shift

the way you change

they need my steady

unshifting gaze.

 

Mankind has seen you

before they've seen me

and yet I exist 

to set captives free.

 

So feel not like a burden

my beautiful Moon

for even Stars like me

love being blinded by you.
