I am a moth and you are the light,
I think about you day and night.
I am starting to realize that there is a glass,
This not-seeable barrier I cannot pass.
Just being there, you keep me warm,
But now I realize, I am just part of a swarm.
The same path every night I repetitively flew,
So badly, I want to be next to you.
