I had a place among the best, those who shone and brightened,
I sparkled as I gave away my light , to light the way of the frightened.
I had the power to illuminate, a special shimmer to me.
I lighted the way when the night snatched the capability to see.
The stars envied me , I stood out from all the rest,
They tried to get attention, but I was always considered the best.
I was worshiped as the goddess of beauty, looking at me was everyone’s pleasure,
Humans even toured my surface, they thought the rocks covering me were a real treasure,
I glistened in the night sky , happy to be me.
It was only my light at night which enabled people to see.
My pride didn’t last forever, i started to disappear,
It was the first of the lunar month, the moonless sky was here!
