YOU, WHO THE STARS SING TO
the great you,
who lies abed in a canopy of stars.
you, who is the greatest lover
of all humanity.
you, who i dream of
in those dusky nights;
you are everything good in this world.
you, the unconditional lover,
my dearest moon.
everyone who has ever lived
looks upon you every night;
you are the reminder of home.
my grief is waned by you alone,
your silvery arms reaching to me
in that godly embrace.
there is no loving without you,
so many secrets you keep,
hidden beneath that veil of stars;
your voice silent between the clouds.
and yet somehow,
i still hear you in my dreams.
you are my great protector.
i am yours to have and to keep.
know this, darling moon:
no matter how long times go on,
i will never stop
i will remember you forever.

I love this one! I find ‘the great you,’ is a powerful opening line.
I also really liked “my grief is waned by you alone,” with the verb invoking the cycles of the moon. A beautiful ode :)
