Hang Your Hat on the Moon, My Daughter

These are song lyrics by Vicki McCrone. She is the daughter of my late friend Maryanne.
This is for my daughter.

One by one your senses come alive
but you know it doesn't happen overnight.
So stop your worrying about wondering why
it took so long for the season to arrive
'cause you know you've got to keep on moving on,
you've come such a long, long way.

Hang your hat on the moon my daughter
Don't give up til it's time to give up,
just hang your hat on the moon.

It will come - all it takes is a little time
all it takes is knowing there is something more
so what is all this crying for - it won't be long,
I can see it in your eyes.
I can see you've got to keep on moving on.
You're not that far away.

In the dark it would come to try to take the dream away
but it's a different day now,
and you're wide awake now.
In the dawn will be what you have wanted all along
As if it always was - don't ever give it up.

Just hang your hat on the moon , my daughter.
Hang your hat on the moon.

That's quite beautiful. I hope it helps your daughter with whatever transition she's going through.

Your daughter has one very special mom. I hope she reads this over and over again, what a beautiful poem to give to her!
