"By Moonlight"

“By Moonlight”

We’re all mysterious
By moonlight, so hush
Now and sleep so I can
Watch you. 

I love the way your eyelashes
Flutter against your cheek,
Eyes dancing behind eyelids
Caked in mocha shadow and the 
Smeared eyeliner you 
Forgot to wash off again. 

I’d like to think that you’re
Dreaming of me, but you don’t
Even know I’m here.

I’ll add it to the tally of
Things to do someday,
Scratch it at the bottom of a
List that stretches like adding

Machine tape as far as the
Eye can see - up one
Hill and down the other, a
Great Wall of China (certainly
On the list somewhere, probably
Somewhere after “learn to tie shoes” but
Before “age gracefully”) of somedays.

So if you’d like to wish me well,
Wish me a life long enough to live my list.
