I wave when you don't, and when you do,
Only because I look up to you.
Watch as I dance with my jelly-like bones,
That can't be broken by sticks or stones.
My eyes go deep when you closely stare,
But a kiss would leave you gasping for air.
Make me at one with the misty moon,
And lo and behold, we'll separate soon.

Who/what am I?

Your reflection cast on water?

I wave when you don't, and when you do,

ripples and waves?

Only because I look up to you.

from the surface of the water

Watch as I dance with my jelly-like bones,

ripples again

That can't be broken by sticks or stones.

Sticks and stones will break the surface of the water but not your reflection maybe?

My eyes go deep when you closely stare,

look close and you'll see into the water through your own eyes

But a kiss would leave you gasping for air.

also known as drowning

Make me at one with the misty moon,

Step away and instead see the reflection of the sky?

And lo and behold, we'll separate soon.

your reflection gone...?

A wave? Or the sea?

Because:

I wave when you don't, and when you do,

Well the sea has waves which will be if you wave or not

Only because I look up to you.

Not sure, most of us are above sea level

Watch as I dance with my jelly-like bones,

The sea moves and 'dances' with its 'bones' made of water

That can't be broken by sticks or stones.

Water cant be broken by sticks or stones

My eyes go deep when you closely stare,

Reference to the depth pf the sea?

But a kiss would leave you gasping for air.

A) Kissing the sea would be very salty and B) You can't breathe in water, you need air

Make me at one with the misty moon,

Moon controls the tides

And low and behold, we'll separate soon.

Not sure
