“Moon at Dawn” – Tagaytay, 10 March 2015

let me give


your first


at day’s


and i will

let you

be the last


i hear

at day’s



you hold my

hand in

darkest hours;

i stand by

your side

as dawn

breaks through.


moon to your sun,

dusk to the dawn,

light and shadow

at play.


even as night

grows darker

or day

grows brighter,

i fear nothing,

you’ll dare anything

so long

as neither

lets go.
