I found this posted on Tumblr and found it so touching that I had copied it down onto a piece of paper and had it stuck to the wall of my cubicle at work. The author is credited with a link to her blog beneath the poem. Just thought I’d share:)
they were once in love, the moon and a star,
both so glittering and bright that they illuminated the night sky.
but the star withered and died, collapsed into emptiness,
and the moon could not love it.
just as you cannot love me, my dear,
for not even your light can reach the darkness of my ruined heart
