Reaching for the Moon

Reaching for the moon coming back empty hand,
Tears rolling heart breaking, may be I am just dreaming;
When others look at me and ask me what happened,
I don’t know what to say, so I keep on smiling.
They keep asking….
"Did you reach the moon yet, isn’t it what you need?
Did you get closer, touched it and felt the heat?
How long has it been since you have been trying?
Don’t wait too long sweet heart time is flying. "
I thank them for their advice and I say I will try,
You are right my friends’ time really flies.
Though I know in my heart the sleepless nights,
The courage it took, my prayers and my thoughts;
How I wished and dreamed how much I tried,
How much I want to say, I got a hold of it.

Oh sweet moon why are you far away?
You made the sky your field to play with my mind,
When I come near to you, you run away and hide;
When I give up and walk you shine your light,
Should I just let you go, or should I keep on waiting?
Do you need some time, or should I quit on trying?

May be it is time to let you reach for me,
Come to me sweet moon before it is too late;
The sun have been waiting to take over your place,
But If you come on time we can all celebrate.

Do you sometimes feel like you are so far away from your dream? Does it feel like your are trying to reach for the moon? Whatever your dream may be, and no matter how far it may seem; don’t give up. Keep on trying and keep on praying and wait for god to do his work, because god’s timing is a lot different than our timing.  The scripture tells us  "The lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. It is good one should hope and wait quitely for the salvation of the lord " Lamentation 3: 25-26  God always acts, but not according to our schedule, but his. Sometimes his plan may be a lot diffrent than ours, so keep on listening for God’s guidance.  In the mean time don't forget to show your visible love to others who are also trying to achieve the simple things in life, such as  food, water,  clothing, and  shelter. This things may look simple to us, but for those who are in need, it may feel as if they are trying to reach for the moon. when we bless others we will also be blessed and get one step closer to our  dreams...

  1. Negat, I so identify! It seems there's so much to DO or reach...but G-d is saying I will do, you are to listen, rest and follow. and when life says go, go, that's when G-d says no, no.
