My Boy And The Moon


Dear moon,
have I told you that every time
I see you,
I think of
my boy?
The way his eyelashes gently flutter when he sleeps.
The way he reaches for my hand to grasp it.
He tells me,
"I love you to the moon and back, grandma."
His eyes mischievous and luminous.
He watches the moon
as I do,
in separate cities
but joined in thought and in spirit.
The full moon intrigues him.
The quarter of the moon leaves him with anticipation for the growth
that will transpire.
He wishes he could touch the moon,
hold the moon in his hand and
place it back in the dark sky to light the way,
for all those lost,
for all those unloved.
Because his heart is full,
his heart is kind,
his love is complete.

  4. Ah, this is lovely, though watching the moon from different cities makes me sad. It must be hard to live far from him. He is such a swet boy. I love this poem. You might think about collecting all of your poems to him into a book to give him one day.....a treasure!

  9. I love that he wants to touch the moon, but not for keeps--the world should be full of hearts willing to share the light.

  11. I wonder if every young astronaut felt this way about the moon. Perhaps, to bring a piece back to their grandmothers.
