When I became aware that you loved the moon more than me,
I decided to forget you.

But do you know? I saw the moon tonight and cannot.
I cannot clean

the moon’s picture from my room’s window. Come, please. Come!
Make your hands a bridge.

Over that bridge, I will cross into your heart and soul, become part of you.
And we will grow love,

Honesty, loyalty together.

  1. This relates to my life so much. Makes me feel that im not the only one and it stikes me when it says
    ” I decided to forget you”. Just motivates me to move on.

  4. Dearest Fariba jan,

    It is very beautiful poem and emotional poem, when I was small girls 12 old years ,my sister and I slept on the roofs of our house in summer, and we saw light of moon, it was wonderful for me, I said to my sister: ‘ Latifa! do moon see us and all of people ?do it know about secrets of our hearts? how moon is the good secret hold.”
    After long time when I grow, I was married and when I was miss for my sister, I memories last days.
    moon is my nostalgic memories and memories of my childhood.
    perhaps,moon is a sign of pointless life and last memories.

    Yes, “make your hands a bridge,” which is exactly what your own hands are doing, this with the power of words.
