when i came to kiss you goodnight

When i came to kiss you goodnight,
you were sleeping.

Eyes jumping around behind their curtain,
like children bouncing on the bed when no one’s looking.

Face still soft and round,
even in your dreams you are smiling.

Breaths in {pause} and {pause} out {pause}
long and sinewy as your legs.

In the light of day you struggle to find out who you are,
but in the dimness of dark,
your Self is there, waiting for you.

One day you will find Self
and you will settle in
and know that you are home.

But in the mean time, enjoy the journey…
and know that
in life
and
in your dreams
I will always come to kiss you goodnight.

    Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Taking a few minutes and
    actual effort to create a very good article… but what can
    I say… I procrastinate a lot and don’t manage to get anything done.
