Moon Hug

"Moon Hug" appears on our Party Like a Twinkle Star album. It's a love song for my kids, written when Silas was 3.5 and Jasper was 6.5, attempting to express how I feel about them via poetry. We called our hugs "moon hugs". The phrase "star kisses" was born one day at JAMcamp when we were blowing kisses and catching them in our hearts, and one of my little campers exclaimed, "Those are star kisses!" Check out the second half of the album for more love songs and lullabies like this!

Lyrics:

CHORUS

Come here

I’ll give you a moon hug

Hug you all day long

And all night wide

Star kisses

Rain down around us

We're catchin' 'em here in our hearts

Now we’re shinin’ inside

 

VERSE 1

Like the mountains climbing tall

Like the ocean waves that fall

Like the wind breathing through

That is how I love you

 

VERSE 2

Like the sun huge and hot

Like the tiniest raindrop

Like the buds opening new

That is how I love you

 

CHORUS

So come here

I’ll give you a moon hug

Hug you all day long

And all night wide

While star kisses

Rain down around us

We're catchin' 'em here in our heart

Now we’re shinin’ inside

 

VERSE 3

Like the roots diving down

Like the branches reaching ‘round

Like the forest standing true

That is how I love you

 

VERSE 4

Like the Earth’s gentle turning

Like the stars’ fiery burning

Like the moon round and blue

That is how I love you

 

CHORUS

So come here

I’ll give you a moon hug

Hug you all day long

And all night wide

While star kisses

Rain down around us

We're catchin' 'em here in our hearts

Now we’re shinin’ inside

TAG

Come here (Love) like the mountains

Come here (Love) like the ocean

Come here (Love) like the raindrop

Come here (Love) like the tree roots

Come here (Love) like the stars

Come here (Love) like the blue moon
