Goodnight (for those who are going to sleep)

Posted to Poetry




There is time
for one more
minute of staring
at the sky

In the cocoon
of pillows, laughter
falls to the ground,
luckily not broken

Play with friends
and hold a moment's peace

Let everything remind
you of the past
so tomorrow can wipe
away the sin
from your sandy eye

Now dim the light,
and let the absence
of stars from your sight
be a goodbye
