Here and now I love you. You make

the moon blue. You make

my every wish come true. People


always want the sun to walk

slower when you are here

and the night to go by quickly

so they can see you faster.


You love me so dearly.

You’re scared when you leave me.

But you are far away,

but I see you ride fearfully

on that only cloud. But you

are the one, the one & only mom.


By Kyra, 4th grade
