He told her, “If you miss me just look at the moon,
I’m going away but I’ll come back soon. “
She waited for him, the moon beckoned from afar…
Her mind in turmoil, her heart at war.
Life moved on, how long could she wait?
She got married at an auspicious date.
The moon said, “I’m here, why do you worry? “
So she became her own hero.. wrote her own story!
As she aimed for the sky, she let go of her fear of falling…
As she reached for the moon,
It was her dreams that she finally stopped stalling.
