If I get a child, I would teach them how to love the moon,
As the moon loves her children
As the moon loves her guardians, the stars
If I get a child, I would teach them how to shine as the moon does,
Not as bright as the Sun but as important.
Not as dim as the stars but just as special.
If I get a child, I would teach them how to be a selenophile
Loving the moon with all their heart,
Loving the moon as I love Her.
If my child would ever have a rough day,
Because the kids at school are being bullies,
Or because the teachers were too unforgiving,
Or because the sun was just beating down on them too much,
I would tell them to wait until the night has come.
I would tell them not to wish on a falling star but rather the moon.
Wish to the moon all your love, and share it with her.
For as she reflects the sun’s ray,
She will reflect you love’s waves
And project upon the world that is too cruel to go unnoticed.
If my child would think of themselves alone,
I would tell them to wait until night has come.
I would tell them to once again look up at the moon,
For someone out there is reflecting their love upon her,
And when you feel the love radiating from her,
My child, you will never feel alone.
If my child were to get married one day,
And she decides to have her love pronounced by the moon.
I would tell her to go ahead, have your wedding at night.
For the moon, will walk her down the aisle with me,
Her shine will be intoxicating,
Her glow astounding,
As she was and always will be
If my child were to see me on my death bed,
I would want to her to know that she, the moon, is here with me.
Ready to make me a star.
And that she would never fret,
For the moon will always guide her way through the darkest of nights,
As she has always for me
