Meeting points …..

moonlightinmayoI called to visit a family in the parish last night and, when leaving their home, I spotted the moon and “clicked”.  I was reminded of Imelda May’s song “Meet you at the moon”.  She said she wrote it for her mother.  It was her way of connecting with her mother when they are miles apart.  The moon they see, no matter where they stand, is the same moon and the suggestion is to meet there.  A lovely sentiment.

We’re lookin’ at the same moon
Though we’re miles apart
We’re wishin’ on the same star
When you’re deep in my heart

I don’t know if you know
But when we miss each other so
Look up, I’ll meet you at the moon

We’re starin’ at the same sky
Strange as it seems
We’re sittin’ on the same earth
Though there’s oceans between

I don’t know if you know
But when we miss each other so
Look up, I’ll meet you at the moon

Mmm, I’m part of you
And your part of me
But it’s a cold old world
When your missin’ somebody

Without you I wouldn’t couldn’t be
So when your heart is achin’
And it can’t take much more breaking

We’re lookin’ at the same moon
Though we’re miles apart
We’re wishin’ on the same start
When your deep in my heart

I don’t know if you know
But when we miss each other so
Look up, I’ll meet you at the moon
