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
