Out Of Reach
Tangled in the branches
In awe of the view
My goal was to meet with the sky
Longing to be closer to where I find comfort
How much longer will I wander alone, remaining hidden from your sight?
I've strayed so far that my footprints have faded into the soil.
The light used to guide me
Now it's disappeared behind dark clouds
It seems like so long ago when I used to sit in anticipated silence with you.
Those days have evaded me
I'm not as young as I was then and certainly not as innocent
Once you've lost your way it's difficult to come back.
Uncertainty is embedded in my soul
These moments of doubt are tiring
I crave an escape
Time ticks on as I linger beneath the moon
If I could just touch it maybe I'd understand
It's wisdom I wish for
This stirs up chaos deep within
Seeing the truth is a painful thing
With what little strength I had I pulled myself up higher, in attempt to finally meet you
But the higher I climbed the further you became
Fear washed over me
Don't be so far that I can't find you
What have I done?
Is it too late to make amends?
I wondered what I looked like through the eyes of the moon
Like a child?
Or rather a coward.
Standing out on the limb I reached out in front of me, stretching my arm to the heavens
I raised my hand above me like shield
Between my fingers beams of light poured down on my face
This moment is all have
Caught in the beauty I took a risk
Carried safely to earth's floor by the Moon.
