I see the Moon...
The moon is beautiful tonight. Driving back from town I could hardly keep my eyes off it and on the road. A good friend shared this song with me and now it often comes to mind when the moon is especially bright. Reminds me of the people I'm longing to see.
"Can you see the moon tonight
Radiant beams of purest light
Our hearts’ connection
Carries me back to a lullaby
The sweetest song in my memory
Of Mama’s voice on moonlit nights
To hush her babies, singin’...
I see the moon, the moon sees me
The moon sees the one that I want to see
God bless the moon, and God bless me
And God bless the one I’m longing to see
Did you ever notice the man in the moon
He’s the master of reflection
Somehow he knows and imitates
My heart’s expressions
Some nights he’s melting in clouds of tears
Or shining my smile like the bright sun
But look, tonight the moon looks like
He’s missing someone."
