Night and Day

Light and Dark

The time of lovers and dreams
As I sit beneath the stars
I count how many times I see you in them
But you shine brighter than them all
The moon, so beautiful, but alone
And sometimes missing altogether
Yes, I suppose I am the moon
For sometimes my thoughts are here fully
Sometimes they are half-thinking of you
And sometimes I’m completely out of it
Thinking of you does that to me

Yet I know that when my night is over
You will rise in the east
Brighter than all the stars
And brighter than me
I can only reflect the brightness you give me
And we all know you can’t see the moon for the sun
So forget what they say
You brighten the day
You are worth so much to everyone
You are worth so much to me
Keep shining

Then, when the sun leaves
You can see the moon again
You can see me
But little do they know
That when they can’t see me
It’s because I’m with you
And that’s why I shine

Goose bumps?
The jimmyjams?
Definitely made my hair stand as well.
I didn't want to stop reading.
Splendid work.

Is it cold or are these real goosebumps?

Either way it is a smooth, well thought out write. Very much my style. It is a tasty puzzle indeed, dying to be eaten!
