For Jenni

do you know

all the faces that the moon can make

on a summer’s night

 

and did you know

all the winks you get

when you sing

to a starry night

if you do it

just right

 

because they know

and they see you as you are

just a girl

in a big made-up goofy world

 

but can you see

that they know more than you think

about the way

that things are fashioned from the brink

of what we know

and what we always try to think

of what is

should be

and could be

you see

 

they know

as they were placed there in the sky

by his hands

and they pass us every night

riding high

 

and yes they see

those same hands from up above

holding you

just as gently as a dove
