Child in the dark

under the star stained sky,

catch as many fireflies you want

and use them for a light .

Punch a few holes in the top

on the lid of your mason jar ,

if death be by the morning

you've sworn to a broken heart.

Smile , sleep, and dream

of catching minnows,

in the stream.

Be alive the things

I once admired ,

be the life you loved

for my desire.

Brush your teeth

every night before bed ,

bedroom door cracked open

and a night light by your head .

Intrude and interrupt

a romance so discrete ,

dragging along your tigger

to fall asleep between .

Summer heat burning

with agony and disgrace ,

sanctuary of melted ice cream

dried upon your face.

Pumpkins carved and placed on

the posts of the front porch,

vanilla scented candles

used for fragrance and a torch.

Raiding every house for

all the candy you can eat ,

wearing your vampire costume

each year on Halloween.

Three feet of snow

watching it drift and fall ,

father carries in the tree

he cut down with a saw .

Be alive the things

I once admired ,

be the life you loved

for my desire ..
