What If Our Sun Was the Moon

By: Melanie Mercado


What if our sun was the moon?

Would you count on the moon like you used to?

Would the clouds be our stars?

The ones we’d tell our secrets to.


What if the sun was our moon?

Would the flowers dare to bloom?

Our midnight turning into our afternoon.


What if the sun was our moon?

Could I still love you?

Could you still make me swoon?  


So many questions in my head,

Taking over thoughts I thought I’d always dread.

But now I understand that the sun will never be our moon,

Because we need light and I need you.
