Take me to the moon

Folder: 
Requiescat in pace

TAKE me to the stars, Mummy,
I need to find the moon.
Take me to the highest mountain.
Let me touch the clouds.
I need to see, to hear, to touch.
I need to find the moon.
Please, Mummy, take me to the stars.
I need to find the moon.

Take me to a cliff, sheer rock,
So I may smell the sea.
Let me fly with a gull's grace
Down to the mighty waves.
I need to see, to hear, to touch.
I need to find the moon.
Please, Mummy, take me to the stars.
I need to find the moon.

Take me to a forest, Mummy.
I need to breathe the air.
Give me eyesight of a tiger searching for its prey.
I need to see, to hear, to touch.
I need to find the moon.
Please, Mummy, take me to the stars.
I need to find the moon.

A mother rocked her dying child
And listened to the her murmur.
"I'm sorry, Baby," she whispered softly.
"I can't take you to the stars."
But she didn't hear her mother's words,
For she had found the moon.
