through the cracks

your light it burns so bright
in the corner packed so tight
with dusty nick knacks and treasured things
and all the stuff that time will bring
your light slips through my curtain
past the window sill
it carries through the darkness
waves of hope and will
gentle light so warm and blue
only thing, forever true
you picked me up in the night
in times I froze; sombre fright



Child, Mother, Father
Sit around the table
Small, distraught
No anger now
They wonder why
Wonder where it went wrong
Why did he take it
Steal himself from us
How could he leave us this way

I awake
Staring at the roof
Autum leaves fall softly
Breeeze picks up
Carries them
They stray
Far away
Why did I leave them this way
