Song of the Moon

by Pema Drolma ‘A’


I am a non-luminous clock
All alone in the busy sky
I am a circular mirror
Which reflects the light of emotions

When the whole world sleeps
I stay awake and wish
Good night with full of love
But only the sensitive can understand

I always want to appear
But my way is blocked with cloud
Which makes me disappear
Sadly, I can’t come regularly

I am like a bodyguard
Protecting the whole world
From the great darkness
In the absence of sun

I see everything going on
Rich ones enjoying their power
Poor family sleeping empty stomachs
Which breaks my heart apart.
