tears at night

Tears at night


 I heard a child crying in the night

Why are you crying son, my father said?

I feel so sad, why are you weeping?

I long for the old days when livening near

The forest where my dog and I walked.

I wish to return.

You are too old now, my father said, think

Of your struggle carry firewood and water

The hills are steep.

I had dreams back then of being famous

 it has come to nothing.

If you believe in yourself, it is all you need,

My father said.

A sigh from the son that went louder and

Louder and ended in anguish holler.

Both father and son fell asleep and soon

It will be morning.
