One More Shadow (poem)

My children sleep for I have work to do

This wasn’t what I planned for us at all

It seems we’ve come upon this wasting wall

And we must close our eyes to see it through


In some tomorrow this we won’t recall

What I must do to bring some Joy to you

There are some shadows best you never knew

There are some memories we can forestall


But one more shadowed deed now waits for me

Take this my kiss to guard you as you sleep

Till shame and I again are by your side


It seems so me no safer place to be

For there no strangers ever hear you weep

And from this no safer place to hide
