Sweet child in me


I cherish you, sweet child in me

I don’t know when I lost the sun
It’s been years in the making
Every dark cloud eating away at my mind
As a moth
My face toneless crumples
So much weighted
I forget how to resound in laughter
Nothing tastes right
Not even you
Tonight as I gaze upon a near perfect moon
Every moon honestly
I vow to light myself by its light
From my insides
Will it if I must
You deserve nothing less from me
You are the sun that breaks up the clouds of my every day
And even if all I can do is be but a reflection of your light
This day to next
I’ll be lit up
If only so you might see the beauty I wake up for every day
