Papa, Please Get The Moon For Me – Christine E. Ray

photo-1554201064-559128fd3c61
so many nights
did I gaze
at the stars
wondering
if you stood
on a distant shore
looking up
wistfully
thinking of me
pondering
whether our skies
were the same
I could almost imagine
us side by side
your sure hand
pointing out constellations
patiently for me
Orion
Cassiopeia
Ursa Major
Papa-
if you had been there
on that windswept
Cape Cod beach
would you have ruffled
my hair
smiled with pride
affection
and promised me
the moon?
