What I like, and what struck me straight off is the sadness of your words - cradles my crushed heart - but the moon pic you've chosen is the smiley moon..
hedging your bets and having fun mike, enjoyed it.
Love the assonance in you and moon, alliteration in the S with safely, cradlES and cassonance in the hard C. It's crazy how many poetic tools you used in just a few words. Not to mention a deep message. I really like this my friend!
That is a rather lovely little saying in the classic lune form with some neat alliteration on the CR sound in the final line. Well thought out and constructed. The crescent shape is not unlike the idea of a cradle.
