The moonlight from your window shines on your sweet face.
The night is still, but I can hear the voices in my head.
I hear when you were only 2, saying “Mommy, I love you!”
I hear when you were 8, saying, “Mommy, I love you soooo much!”, as your arms wrapped themselves tightly around my neck.
“I love you to the moon and back!”, was something we often said, and you at times wouldn’t miss a beat as you said, “I love you to the solar system and back!”
Oh the night is still and my heart is throbbing with a LOVE so big for you.
