Goodnight

As the arms of night

come enveloping in,

I glance at the chair

that you’re not in.

An indentation

of your proud old head,

is all that remains

to take me to bed.

I close my eyes

images pass

glimpses of you

but they don’t last.

I long for my dreams

where you are almost real

I can talk, you answer

your hand I can feel.

God bless father

comfort my heart that is raw.

Goodnight daddy

till sleep comes once more
