Sky Gazing with My Grandmother

Sky Gazing with My Grandmother

By: Heather Nanni

On warm summer days

we gazed up so high

and saw strange creatures

that danced in the sky


Such beauty up there

in that space above

I saw without fear

because of your love


But then came the night

It took you away

and left a sad child

who wished you would stay


And as the moon sits

on her silver throne-

you far beyond her

and me all alone


I think of those days

for which I now grieve

when sun reigned supreme

still you had to leave


And now the moon shines

benevolent light

Can you still see me

here in the night?
