Take Me To The Moon

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Take Me to the Moon.”

I can’t read a music note, nor carry a tune, even under the full moon.
The best I can do is dedicate this Tex Ritter song to my True Love.

“Just Beyond The Moon” was written by Slate, Jeremy.

I’ll walk just beyond the moon
Then, I’ll stop and wait for you
My mother and my father were in love for fifty years
So, when dad died, we wondered why my mother shed no tears

We asked her once about it but she wouldn’t tell us why
Instead, she’d walk outside each night, and smile up at the sky
And just before she left us, she called us to her side
She told us what my father said to her just before he died

I remember, when you said, you’d never leave me
Through these golden years, I’ve kept the same by two
But now, as I am going, please don’t leave me
You can look up every night, and you’ll see me, light the light
Where I’ll watch for you to join me, someday, soon
We’ll go looking through the stars, for the heaven that is ours
And I know, we’ll find it soon, somewhere, just beyond the moon

I’ll walk just beyond the moon, then, I’ll stop and wait for you
I’ll just sit there by a star and I’ll watch you from afar
Till I see you walking toward me, someday, soon
Then, together, hand in hand, we’ll find our promised land

And we’ll settle down forever, darling
Just beyond the moon
I’ll walk just beyond the moon
Then, I’ll stop and wait for you
