To Catch a Lover at Midnight

The reason we find a lover is to learn new ways in which to love ourselves. Each new lover that comes into your life will bring an acknowledgement of something to shine the light on in celebration in your self. “Oh, he loves how funny I am with him when I get lost driving. Wow, I must not be a stupid ditz, maybe I am just cute,…and funny! I love that about me!”. Or oh she loves the sides of my stomache that sticks out of my jeans when I tuck my shirt in. Maybe I am not chubby to her, maybe I am just cute…and strong for her? Wow, I can let go of a fear that women only want buff men . Great… I love my body and I love to eat! BC sometimes it takes the moonlight to see the ripples of the waves at night…

Sometimes it takes the moonlight
To see the ripples of the waves at night

Sometimes it takes the moonlight
To see the ripples of the waves at night

What was lost has been fround
Breaking its way from underground

Hibernating from the sun
Resting where it had begun
Illuminating late at night
Extricating all the fright

Because sometimes it takes the moonlight
To see the ripples of the waves at night.

Walking home alone hand in hand
Reuniting with my land
A bright and barren field of green
Bursting with blossoms at the seams
Harvest time has come again
To reconnect with all its friends
The trees and birds
The rocks and leaves
Co-habitating with the breeze
What was lost has been found
Breaking its way from underground

Last month the timing wans’t right
To blossom any other day but the night
How do I know?
Because the breeze whispered in my ear
Telling me not to fear
Harvest time is so near
And to get ready for a beautiful year.
There goes the sunlight for the day
But your constant colors can still play

Because sometimes it takes the moonlight
To shee the ripples of the waves at night.
