One More Shadow (poem)

Updated on October 2, 2015

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
