Thousands then  notice my happiness
          And delight in pointing
              Toward my beauty.

    Is it our true that our destiny
          Is to turn into Light

             Dear Moon,
 Now that your love is maturing,
       We need to sit together
      Close like this more often

          So I might instruct you
                How to become
                         Who you
