I am the moon
Barren and lifeless
Even my light is just a reflection
You are the earth
Lush and green
Full of humanity
But without my calming influence
My constant pull on your waters
My cycles ebbing and flowing
My reflection
You are not inspired
You are unstable
You are less illuminated
My presence calms you
And you only worry a little
That you always see one side of me
That there are hidden aspects
You can only see
If you visit
At great effort and cost
But you can see me from a distance
Anytime you like
I hope you smile when you do
