I see the moon. The moon sees me.

I see the moon. The moon sees me.
The moon sees somebody that I don't see.
God bless the moon. God bless me.
God bless the somebody that I don't see.
If I get to heaven before you do,
I'll make a hole and pull you through.
I'll write your name on every star.
That way the world won't seem so far.


  1. when i was really little, my mom used to sit on the porch with my sisters and i at night - us in our "princess" nightgowns - and she would sing this. only, she said "that i wanna see," instead of "that i don't see." this post brought back great, but slightly sad in that nostalgic way, memories.

    oh, and the moon picture is still incredible.

  2. Awe. :) I'd never heard any version of this until I saw it at the beginning of Sarah Kay's TED talk video. (Link in post.) I love it! It gets stuck in my head all the time now.

  3. This is now my daughter's favorite lullaby....mine too


Each comment you leave donates one smile to my day.
