Enigma Weekend Edition: Poetry by Monica Herr

"The Moon, My Friend" 
by Monica Herr

My window is dirty
but I can still see you
Lovely, Beautiful
everything I want to be

Many cups on my windowsill
But I can still see you
Bright, Shining
Everything I want to be

My music is loud
but I can still hear you
whispering, wise
everything I want to be

Faint conversations
but I can still hear you
quiet, intelligent
everything I want to be

The moon, my friend, is
my aspirations
my hopes and dreams
my motivation
my future
