The Rising Moon

My friend Sarah sent me this today. It seems to be tear-inducing wherever it goes. Just be aware.

The Rising Moon

As the moon begins to rise
I catch a glimpse of almond eyes
Staring back from outer space
The moon reflects your loving face.

My heart begins to yearn for you
A love down deep that grows so true
I see the moon throughout the night
My dreams of you are taking flight.

So when you look upon the moon
Please know that we will be there soon
I pray reflected in its light
Will be our love for you this night.

The moon must now complete its course
Let’s not regret and show remorse
It soon will rise and start anew
Reflecting love meant just for you.

This is Becky from your parent's church in Longview. I know this is an exciting time for you. She looks like a really big blessing. My prayers go with you.
