To the Stars and the Moon

Originally published in LLL of New Mexico’s Enchantment

I never got to meet you,
Little, tiny almost-child;
You slipped away
To the stars and the moon
And didn’t come back
To tell Mommy how beautiful they were.

Your big brother
And your not-so-big brother
And your great big Daddy
Were ready to love you;
Ready to let their hearts grow,
Ready to play and tease and wonder
What you thought about them.

So, as I look at the stars and the moon
Could you please let me know
How beautiful they are;
Because sometimes it’s hard
For me to see them at all
Without you here to hold my hand.
