Dreams to run with you

Sweet Magic moon
So how are you today?
Spellbound me with your smile I cannot take off my eyes
Showering your gold dust all over my crumpled room

Still I can remember how my mom rocked me in her lap
Showing your beaming smile high in the sky
Singing her moon songs I favor so much
Struggled to keep my eyes fixed at you serene smile

Shined with your beams I used to run all over our compound
Screamed gleefully when I saw you too were pacing with me
Sometimes your face was hidden with thick wooly packs
Searched all over with tears, for my playmate I couldn't catch

So young  and  fresh, you look gorgeous  Magic moon, but
Striding in this long march, now I am feeble, not young anymore
Strive hard to keep steady when I drag my feet in my walker, 
Small girl living in my heart dreams to run with you even though
