The Yawning Abyss

In the yawning abyss
the sun kissed
the moon
as it rose
in the sky.

When eternity ends
Mother nature lends
a helping hand
to make a stand
so moon and sun
unite as one

They shall not meet
until defeat
so far apart
but in each other's heart
their love will grow
like falling snow

And in the sky
sun and moon will die
their souls
now whole
shall coalesce
in the yawning abyss
