Could you give me your opinion on this poem?

Connect sometimes
Kid for a while
Confuse in a night
And see the light

Call your name
Imagine your face
Listen to Duoi Trang

May the moon remember the person who used to look at the moon on his partner's eyes?
Is this meaning " Trang co con nho mot nguoi nhin Trang trong mat mot nguoi"?

It does not mean that. It means his partner's eyes look like the moon which lightens him.

If you wanr to understand the moon more, read Han Mac Tu's poems more.
