Waiting for your call

At nightI sleep with the phone next to my earsWaiting for your callIt has been 3 years6 months3 weeks5 days12 hours14 minutes And 5 seconds Since you told me to waitThe phone hasn’t rungThe broken down house is the last place I can still call home The lights haven’t worked in yearsAnd the water doesn’t runBut I have stayed Waiting…

My Precious Gift

The moon has risen And my little one you should be asleep Put your book away Words can wait another day Now close your eyes And count to 10 Remember how warm a hug feels Think of your favorite toy Sounds of your little breath fill the air Rest now my child Listen to this…
