A picnic on the moon

A Picnic on the Moon

If the sun doesn’t come up tomorrow and our time on earth is through
I can say I loved an angel and that angel you know was you
A cherubim without wings with a radiance all your own
I now know you are a blessing and I have reaped what I have sewn

Walking together hand in hand through the heavens up so high
Sharing a few smiles as we dance across the sky
Chasing away the clouds as we hurdle the mountain tops
Riding on the winds of time and hoping the ride never stops

Reaching up towards the heavens as I grab a star passing by
And have a picnic on the moon with a sparkle in my eye 
Time will have no meaning as we sit there on the sand
As we gaze down on the earth while we hold each others hand

Waiting on a comet that will show us the way to heaven above
Spreading some joyful cheer in a mansion built on love
I was lucky to find an angel one that didn’t have wings
She made the colors of the rainbow and the other angels sing

So if the sun doesn’t come up tomorrow and my time on earth is done
I found an un-winged angel that I knew was the very one
That would hold my hand forever as we danced across the sky
Knowing we would share our lives forever in the heavens up so high

    Hi David, this is truly a beautiful poem. I am thinking though, how much nicer, smoothly the meter would flow if you did the whole thing in a syllable count. Just a thought. Hugs, catie :)
