Granny tells me you always watch over me 
     from the shimmering moon, ……….yet it seems so far!
But my dear Mama, I'm going to pull down 
     that bright sliver crescent moon and bring you back,
          just because I love you so much…oh so much.
Will we ever play together again, ma?
     I climb this ladder, so I'll reach out for you,
there on your yellow moon tip and find you there.

I was going to write that I found this tender and touching but Maureen already expressed those responses. Will it negate my individuality writing the same? No, because those words do express my genuine reactions. I was equally moved by the innocent determination that fuels a child's will to accomplish what no one has yet convinced them is impossible. This poem many great poetic ingredients, Victor - a gem. Poetry hugs ... CayCay
