Next time...

Missed the full moon
again.
Forgot to look up
again.
Doesn't matter, does it?
It will be there
again.
...what if I am
not?

We have been having rain... need that more than the moon though. :-)
But your point is so true.

Then you will be missed by all of those whose heart and mind you've touched.

Then there will be another black hole in the universe, sucking all happiness and light inexorably down it's gaping maw forever, never to escape again.

Reason enough to stay?

Ah, my friends... I do want to stay.

What I was trying to say here, is that if we don't take the time to do/see what we want, we could be gone before the next chance offers itself again.

Thank you for not wanting me to leave.

I watched the full moons of summer,
dreaming through each one.
I wasn't the only dreamer,
but I sat alone at the fire.
