Waiting for Luna

Xenophilius waits for his daughter to come home. DH spoilers. Characters belong to Rowling.



Luna is such a sweet child
A good girl
A nice girl
So clever and curious and brave and polite
So much like her mother
But Luna isn't here right now
She's down by the river
Catching Plimpies for dinner
She'll be back soon

Luna is such a helpful child
A good daughter
A fine daughter
A pride and a joy for her old father
And for her mother
But Luna isn't here right now
She's down by the river
Catching Plimpies for dinner
She'll be back soon

Luna is such an intelligent child
A smart witch
A powerful witch
She knows to lure the Snorkack, to ward the Wrackspurt and to sing for the stars
She learnt that from her mother
But Luna isn't here right now
She's down by the river
Catching Plimpies for dinner
She'll be back soon

Luna is such a unique child
A special kid
A lonely kid
Dancing to her own tune, all alone, living between the worlds
Just like her mother did
But Luna isn't here right now
She's down by the river
Catching Plimpies for dinner
She'll be back soon

Luna is such a happy child
A glad bird
A sparkling bird
She laughs and twitters and hums and sings
She reminds me so much that it hurts of her mother
But Luna isn't here right now
She's down by the river
Catching Plimpies for dinner
She'll be back soon

Luna is such a friendly child
A thoughtful friend
A good friend
I'm so happy for her, that she's found people to share with, and fight with, and laugh with and love with
That is such a comfort for me and her mother
But Luna isn't here right now
She's down by the river
Catching Plimpies for dinner
She'll be back soon

But it's growing cold
And it's growing dark
And Luna is late

Luna is my only child
A dear child
A missed child
They took my Luna from me, and her friend's portraits are scattered
I've lost her, I've lost my Luna, just as I lost her mother
Luna isn't here
She isn't down the river
Catching Pimples for dinner
She'll never come back again
