When the moon dreams

When the moon sleeps
It dreams of things
That has no meaning
To the modern man
There are wounds on its soul
That is older than the fragrance of time
The moon dreams
Of the past
Of things long gone
And memories best left alone
It is a lonely moment
Where the current ideas
Do not take hold
It dreams of old friends and forgotten lovers
Of revolutions long passed away
Of planetary motions
That has no meaning to its existence
It dreams
Darkness takes its soul
The other half still knows
The significance of the night
And if it were
To open its eyes
For just a moment or two
It would see
That dreams
Are no less than make belief
That its ideals
Mean nothing to a forgotten cause
For when it remembers
To close its eyes once more
It will fade
Into the night’s sky
As if the universe
Reclaimed what it once lost.
