A crowd has gathered for the procession,
A clock erected for all to witness,
All eyes focused on the podium,
At this hour, I mark one year less.

Just yesterday, mere fillies were she and I,
Basking in the glory of creation,
To her, dominion of the evening nigh,
to me, the rule of Sol/sole domination.

In her heart grew the seed of jealousy,
And a rebellion was instigated,
As her form was changed to one of Night Mare
Threatening to engulf in Equestria.

But my strength was not broken, resisting
Her attacks, eventually defeating
Her, but force cannot overcome feeling,
The hatred from defeat still reeling

Whilst restricting her to fortress lunar,
I pondered on that earlier memory,
When our family bond had been stellar,
regretting outcome this tragedy

A year ago this audience bore sight
Climatic battle that ended union
With the loss of the first year on this night,
A small step of a long quest to reunion
Regret choice of action ? I keep thinking,
hesitate before crowd, think of sibling,
can I return her to her beginning,
only hope and time, in patient waiting.

I close my eyes, let the light embrace me,
Through these many years, sister, wait for me.
Seocnd part of two poems submitted as part of a larger bundle of poetry on Equestria daily

I would have liked it if it was less Celestia as a villein, and more as Celestia as a ruler who had to make a hard decision

And yes, this sounds like Celestia too. These two poems work so well together.
