Moon Love: Stop overvaluing fainting stars


“Never ignore a person who loves you, cares for you, and misses you. Because one day, you might wake up from your sleep and realize that you lost the moon while counting the stars” –Unknown
How many times have you heard this before? Never ignore a person who loves you, cares for you, and misses you…….Because one day, you might wake up from your sleep and realize that you lost the moon while counting the stars……..So many of us take this quote as a lesson that we should appreciate the people in our lives. We give others Moon status and we revolve our lives around them so that we can never lose them……We disregard the fainting stars we come in contact with because we give the moon so much precedence above all…….
I found my moon once….I thought that it was everything that I have ever dreamed. It was almost perfect… So frickin perfect!!!………I loved the moon and it was my light in the darkest of days. I never wanted to lose it…..But one day, the moon didn’t shine so brightly anymore. In fact, it abandoned me at times, but I kept holding on. I just couldn’t lose my moon. Instead of rising every night, my moon disappeared some days which left my world in complete darkness.
I cried out…….yet my tears were in vain.
I tried to speak when the moon was present, but each time this occurred the moon would perform a vanishing act.
I valued my moon so much………..but it seems as though it didn’t value me………
When you neglect the stars in the night sky you no longer have light if the moon is gone…….  I gave up all the glistening studs I had in order to obtain the moon, yet it left me in complete darkness. Lost, confused, and so unsure of myself I questioned the creator of all……..In my realm of silence I thought I found nothing……however, I was finally calmed by my thoughts……….What if that light that brightened my night was not the moon after all? What if it was just a fainting star…….
In each person’s life, they will encounter there moon and their stars. Stars are merely those who have an impact on your life whether positive or negative. They are very much needed for your personal development. The moon tends to the individual or individuals(s) who have a dramatic effect on your life for long periods of time. Your moon may be your mother, your spouse, or a family member…….Your stars may include friends, family, and sometimes even your current spouse (if it wasn’t meant to last). At the end of the day, to make your night sky beautifully, you must have both. Your stars and your moon are necessary…………You just have to learn how to differentiate between the two………
Just because something shines so profusely does not mean that it is of greater value than a star. Sometimes things have  a way of looking more expensive than they actually are………Sometimes we place a high value on the wrong people and we lose ourselves completely because we gave everything else up……… Sad, but so very true. We label people as stars and say they aren’t important, when in actuality they may have been our moon….
I guess what I am trying to say is be careful of the individuals you value. As humans, at times we value the wrong ones and believe that they are so beneficial to us when they are actually just bringing us down……… Don’t overvalue some fainting star and miss out on your true moon!! Life is too short……Yet a night in complete darkness can seem like forever……..
Moon Love

Amidst the world that’s warm yet cold
As I sit underneath the tree
Your eyes gaze upon my body
Yet my eyes won’t let me get sleep
Infatuated by your beauty
I no longer focus on the stars
For you are who I want forever
I wish to lie forever in your arms
Amidst the world that’s warm yet cold
As I sit underneath the tree
Your love is really all I need
Your love has set me free
