Both Sides of the Moon

In the million minutes since
your heart stopped beating
and you jumped into the sky

I've seen you laughing,
teasing, flying and dancing
between the stars
waving and winking through the clouds,

languidly resting on the invisible side
of the moon.

Thank you for bravely going first,
for making it look easy and fun,
inviting us to dance with you
on both sides of the moon.
