Come Fly Me to the Moon

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

Make the world go away,
make rainbows appear,
where once the sky was gray,
take me by the hand,
take me to where red poppies,
nod beneath the sun,
take the sorrow of passing winter away -
come fly me to the moon.


You came when I was alone,
when the full moon shone,
I took your hand,
believing you could make life grand.
You whispered sweet words of love,
stealing my heart away,
I wanted you to stay forever
and fly me to the moon.


Time has flown,
wish I had known,
you were a magician,
took me dancing in the dark,
making candlelight sparkle magically,
while the moon above,
made the world seem made of silver,
we'd dance till dawn,
you kept me safe and warm,
left me with golden memories,
songs that play on and on again in my mind
and in the night I can dream -
when you came to fly me to the moon.

You have described magical moments perfectly. Got reminded of a lost love while reading this.

Rasma, that is a dream you can look forward to having each night. You can turn back the sands of time even if only for a few hours.

Beautiful!

Your poem expresses lovely memories of a loved one who is no longer here. Well done!

Wonderful poem...i can sense the sadness that you didn't appreciate it at the time but since it's gone...you miss it & realize just how special it was.

Nice one.
