Blue Moon
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
Blue Moon
You know just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I really could care for

And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will ever hold
I heard somebody whisper please adore me
And then I looked to the Moon it turned to gold

Blue Moon
Now I’m no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own


Meg and Riley with the Blue Moon high in the sky.

I’m gazing up at the gorgeously full blue moon and thinking about those whom I hold close in my heart even though they’re far away.  My daughter Meg and her husband Matt in Florida.  When we look up at this satellite of the earth in our far corners of the world, we somehow feel like we are together…connected and closer…one with the moon, so to speak. I send her a picture I take of it with my phone and then receive one she takes with hers.  We are there together seeing it at the same time. I miss her.

When I see this gorgeous reflection of the sun, I am also reminded of my dear friend John Murphy, especially in August when some years ago in this very same month I was in the hospital scared and he was in the hospital in another corner of the world probably scared as well.  I felt connected to him by just looking out my window to the mysterious glowing ball in the hot orange summer night sky. Even though he’s gone now, I still feel him closely watching over me every time I gaze up to see that beautiful celestial circle smiling down on me as I know he is.  This thing called the moon…it connects us in mysterious ways, controls our moods and can be romantic and scary all at the same time. I am just so in love with it.

So I tip my hat to the blue moon on this hot August night.  I’m hoping for what the song lyrics ask for and say prayers for those I really care for…past…present…and future.

 Blue Moon
Now I’m no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
