So radiant and peaceful,
She shines soft light through my window.
She is a glistening pearl in nighttime waters.
She is a lighthouse that the shines the way for the stars to follow.
She is the silent guardian of pleasant dreams.

When I feel lonely,
I gaze at her lovely face for comfort.
When I feel hopeless,
She is there to light the darkest corners of my heart.
Sometimes she feels like my only friend.
Every night she waits silently outside my window.
I have found a faithful friend in the moon.
