Bright Moon in the Dark Sky

When it's 12 in the night,
And the streets are quiet,
I walk across the road,
Looking at the bright moon,
In the dark sky,
Souvenirs of past,
Flashes in my mind fast,
The hurdles I faced
The dreams I chased
The sacrifices I made
The roads that mazed,
Made me unique ,
Just the way, the dark sky
Made the moon!
