To Heaven and Back

I wrote my words of love upon the moon last night
Tiny black words on an orb that shone full and bright

In my heart I felt you reading my love letter
The joy I felt could not have been any better

And as the moon absorbed the words I wrote to you
I suddenly realized you were watching too

So quickly the response came that it touched my soul
A sign that the Goddess of Love was on patrol

What I sent to you, you kindly sent back to me
It was as if the heavens had heard my sad plea

From now on wherever your heart tells you to go
I’ll write upon the moon and you will always know

The love we share will endure to the end of time
Messages from the moon will carry love in rhyme

    Couldn't resist...This poem is a sweet touch of: 'Heaven, Devon'...(You see both your names have three syllables and footles only have two so I had to abbreviate your last name so maybe I better come up with something else and I worked so hard on this and you don't appreciate it and why are YELLING it was just a silly...)

    I've already commented on this one, but wanted to tell you that your writing on the moon has been inspiration for a new Haiku I wrote. Congrats on the selection. Much love, daver

    I see this is the second poem you have put on this month. Hoping that is a sign you are feeling better than a couple of months ago. I really appreciated your comments to me on my knife poem. I knew you have been active in fishing, so I am not surprised you had a knife. Just as the mentality of the movie "a Christmas Story" has been forever lost, the mentality of the pocket knife I am afraid is gone. The knife in a tackle box is probably a close proximity. Love you girl. Be well.
