To the Moon and Back

I opened my hands to see the little firefly
Only for a moment
Before the flickering light left my fingers
And headed toward the skies

I look to the heavens at twilight
For that first twinkling
Like the twinkle in your eyes
Knowing you will watch from above

I listen for the whispers in the dark
Quiet conversations long after bedtime
Hoping to hear your voice in my ear
Validation and sweet nothings

I think of the past, wishing we had known
What the future would hold
But had we, we wouldn’t be here and now
Sharing memories and dreams

I wish for you all the best of everything
Despite the troubles, the pain
And please know, that beyond and above all else
I love you to the moon and back
