Some of my favorite memories come to mind
when I gaze for a while at a bright moon or starry skies...
Memories of ferris wheels, sky lifts, camping out with friends, bonfires,
marshmallow roasts, magic sparklers and fireworks...
chilling ghost stories, haunted houses, trick or treat, werewolves and vampires...
drive-in movies, late night walks and sitting on the porch swing in the dark.
Time has changed me, but it hasn't changed the moon or stars.
They're just as bright and beautiful as ever, a constant light in the darkness.
The moon is at her full, and, riding high,
Floods the calm fields with light.
The airs that hover in the summer sky
Are all asleep to-night.
