A poem about the loss of a friend

I Couldn't Find the Moon

I couldn't find the moon tonight.

It hid behind the clouds.

I cried, thinking of you and how

You loved to watch it rise.

I searched

As crickets sang,

And the soft wind danced to their song.

But I couldn't find the moon tonight,

Only a few sparse stars.

I stood there in the parking lot

As I do every night.

My head turned toward the sky,

I searched for you in the moonlight.

But I couldn't find the moon tonight,

Though last eve'n it was full and clear.

I sought in vain

To see you there,

Watching me down here.

I couldn't find the moon tonight,

But still, I could feel you.

For it is not just in the evening time,

or in the moon,

that I see you.
