12. Yesterday’s Moon

San Diego photographer, Dennis Andersen, mentioned to me one night that he was exhausted. He had been up the previous night getting that evening’s moon photographs uploaded to the internet. Why the rush? Because no one wants to look at pictures of “yesterday’s moon.”

Yesterday’s moon

No longer shining bright

to fill her room

 

Yesterday’s moon

Fallen from the sky

much too soon

 

Her love lives in the past

Like yesterday’s moon

Her love lives in the past

Like yesterday’s moon

 

She thought she’d found a true lover

Said he’d be the real love of her life

But he left her with no word as to why

She felt the oceans dry

Her life rushing by,

sliced with a knife

 

Chorus

Yesterday’s moon

No longer shining bright

to fill her room

 

Yesterday’s moon

Fallen from the sky

much too soon

 

Not wanting to be completely all alone,

She made for the first man who looked and smiled

But was it wrong to want somebody to hold?

Someone to take on home

Not to feel so damn alone

Not to feel on trial

 

Chorus

 

So she still waits for a lover

Hoping all she needs is her warming light

She asks he finds his way to her before too soon

Maybe at the next full moon

When her heart is in full bloom

Bright in the night

 

Chorus

 

She hopes to find love’s light

from yesterday’s moon
