I See the Moon and the Moon Sees Me

When I was a child, my parents would send me to my Grammy’s house for the entire Summer. To make the homesickness go away, they would call at bedtime and tell me to go outside and look at the Moon.

 

Then they’d sing this song to me.

For a moment in time, I always felt comforted knowing we were all looking at the same Moon. Despite being miles apart, it felt like we were together.

The babies and I had a rough day yesterday. The reality of everything, which I have worked so hard to shelter them from, hit hard. My son begged me to take him somewhere. Anywhere. And we both sobbed as I told him we couldn’t.

Once we had settled down, I noticed the Moon in the window. I sang the same song my Mama and Daddy had sang to me all those years ago. It brought a familiar sense of comfort as they began to sing the lyrics in their little angelic voices.

I wanted to share this here with you, with hopes that it may bring your family a small sense of comfort as well. Stay well, and stay home.

“I see the Moon

And the Moon sees me.

The Moon sees somebody I’d like to see.

God Bless the Moon

And God Bless me.

And God Bless the person that I’d like to see.”
