A Child’s Burden


Why so loud when sleep time rolls
It's unstill in rooms they toll
There is talk, most unclear
No words, I'm scared and shed a tear
Morning fetch's calming air
Light brings happy thoughts to bare
No need to think about dark of night
It will come soon enough on twilight

Confusion is masked by play and fun
Night will bring some things undone
Mom is still, this night we'll tout
Dad is gone, he's out and about
When morning rolls we'll see the past
I only hope it won't last
I pray for something, confused I am
Why are nights just a sham?

Sleep again I'll try tonight
Please try less fright, with all my might
I rest on Mom each weary day
I just want to play and play
Oh Dad, oh Dad where are you now
I need to talk somewhere somehow
Oh Dad I miss you each day gone past
I just hope this does not last
