When I became a father, it gave me a new perspective on many things, including bedtime stories and books in general.

My child does not quite understand why
Her bedtime stories make her dad shake
And that uncertain pauses in his voice
Mean something more than a weary sigh

That a story about a rusty forsaken toy
Could mean something about a redemption
Or that a talking beast speaks of fear
That cannot be handled by a mere boy

With so many beautiful doors that closed
Never to be opened in this age or the next
My child knows not what her dad is thinking
In between the stories of heroic deed

Half blind to what is now a common knoweldge
That good never outnumber the bad in the world
My child does not, at this time, comprehend
That her father is starved for a hope and courage.
