Moony Reflections

As much as the darkness of the night can be awful;

I’m not scared of it as it approaches;

Because I can count on the moon;

To light up the sky;

Soft is its light;

But bright enough it is to light my path;

No matter how far I walk;

I find it right in front of me;

As if it is moving with me;

Keeping me company;

Till I get home;


Whiles the sun’s energy has the tendency;

To make me hyper, bubbly and even aggressive;

The caresses of the moon on my face;

Renders me sober, calm and reflective;

As the noise of the world simmers down into hushed tones;

And all the loud voices and thoughts in my head go to sleep;

I am tempted to worry about what becomes of me;

When the sun comes back up the next morning;

But the moon soothes my mind;

Reminding me to be grateful for the day;

As tomorrow’s issues will take care of themselves;


Just as the moon’s existence makes the night less scary;

And can be counted on to show up when you need it to;

It reminds me that no matter how terrible situations become;

I have Someone to count on to show up to see me through;

Just as the moon moves with me with every step in the night;

The Creator of the moon is with me through thick and thin;


So there’s nothing to worry about;

As long as there’s the option to pray about it;

If the moonlight can calm my nerves;

Then God can calm my troubled heart;

If I can trust the moon to appear in the sky;

Then what stops me from trusting that;

God will be by my side when life takes a dark turn?


I’m grateful for the moon’s prompt response to darkness;

But I’m even more grateful for God’s sure presence;

To keep me company when I feel most helpless.


What does the moon teach you?

    Wonderful poem. The moon teaches me that I am but a small part of this huge universe; my troubles are unimportant and my achievements are unimpressive. Perspective is vital in this hectic world, and the moon gives me that. Thanks for a great post!

    This a a great piece. For me the moon teaches me the cycles of life, it waxes and wanes, comes and goes but it always there.

  3. The moon is light in the dark for me. It shows God is there…he provides this visual light for us to remember Him…just as you wrote. It was a beautiful analogy. I am so thankful for His presence. Always.

    Very nicely written… I used to be afraid of the dark a lot as a child and as I grew up I remember to have read a poem quite similar to yours and that gave me faith that the moon’s light is always there in the dark to guide us 🙂
    Would love if you could check out some of my posts too at
