Watching the full moon

full moon libanfull moon liban 2

I would like to watch

the full moon tomorrow

together with you

as it rises beyond the mountains

and lights the sky

to respond to an overlit land

covered with building and road stars

that define the contours of towns and hamlets

I would like to get lost into your eyes

listening to the quiet breeze of the sea

or the lake, or the wind in the trees

and discuss of our worlds

and our books

without any limits of time or space

as we had in the past

I would like to give you

all the tenderness I am capable of

and stepping fully into the one I truly am

and show my true face to the rest of the world

my true face that can only exist through and for you
