Sometimes, I think of the sun and the moon as lovers that rarely meet, always chase, and almost always miss one another. But once in a while, they do catch up, and they kiss, and the world stares in awe of their eclipse.
The story of the sun and the moon is tragic, yet beautiful and hopeful in a sense that even in a hopeless and the worst case scenario when everyone is least expected, sun and moon still make their way to meet each other. You might say that an hour or two is not enough and worthy, but I think you are all wrong. Of course, they rarely meet and embrace each other, and they are not together everyday, yet their love for each other is eternal. Isn’t it inspiring that through years of longing and waiting hopelessly they still never stop loving one another and still make it to be together? Their love is great, touching and pure. The sun loves the moon so much that he dies every night just to let her breathe.
The story of the sun and the moon itself is tragic, but you can turn your story to a beautiful one just like how the sun meets the moon and we have an eclipse that everyone cannot take their eyes off and stares adoringly.
Every spark returns to darkness. Every sound returns to silence. Every flower returns to sleep with the earth. The journey of the sun and moon is unpredictable. But yours, is your ultimate art.

The choice is up to us. Will we ever collide? I know my answer, yet I cannot answer this question for everybody else. Maybe each of us comes up with different answer.
Collide or not, the sun will forever love and protect the moon, and vice versa.
