GOODNIGHT SWEETHEART

You can sleep now,
it's all grown quiet,
this peace is for you.

There was no hand
that reached for mine,
but your head
nuzzled in my lap, claiming your place,
in my heart, in my life.
Never called mommy,
or said you loved me,
in big brown eyes
you said it all.

Sleep now, it's night,
time to rest.

A corner sits empty,
still expect your feet
sounding on the floor.
The nights are still, silent
but they are yours.
I'll miss you forever,
as my heart's missing piece,
shines on.

Goodnight now, Sweetheart,
rest your tired head,
close your eyes,
and worry no more.

You're among the stars now,
Sweetheart, goodnight.
