I Love You Night and Day

"Tell me the story about how the sun loved the moon so much he died every night just to let her breathe." - Makayla Elizabeth Alligire  

When it's late afternoon  
An alarm goes off for the moon  
The sun begins sitting down  
While the moon's taking off her gown  
They change shifts each day  
Always in the very same way  
The sun looks with longing and says with great sorrow  
"All I can offer you is a painted sky and a promise for tomorrow"  
As night creeps into the pale moonlight  
Clouds drift off and go out of sight  
Without a kiss goodbye  
Only a smile and a sigh  
As the sun says, "Goodnight,
I'll see you in the morning's light"
The moon begins to blush  
In the quiet of the evening hush  
And thinks I'll keep him to his word  
Then not another sound is heard  
Until the morning when the sun begins to rise  
As the sleepy moon yawns and rubs her eyes  
So full of love the sun's solemn promise he pledged to keep  
A beautiful dreamer the sun watches the moon sleep  
All day with blue shadows on her face  
If only they could share just one embrace  
But this is the way every day is crowned  
As they continue to ride this merry-go-round  
Keeping hope alive in their dream  
For a single ray to kiss just one beam  
Until then he shines at seeing her and sings a song  
And that's enough to keep her glowing all night long
