Brave Hearts

The man said to the moon

“Where is your brave heart?

For each morning you leave my side.”

The moon said to the man

” where do you find your place?

For every evening you wait for my return.”

The man anchored his hope

on the lamp of the moon

Even though the sun could

lead him home.
