Sing to Me Softly

BEANERY ONLINE LITERARY MAGAZINE

SING TO ME SOFTLY

Malaika King

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~

I remember when

You used to sing me to sleep

 

The softness of your words

Bouncing off the walls

 

And cascading me

With your voice

 

I remember when

You used to stroke my face

 

Telling me everything was all right

Even when it wasn’t

 

I remember when

You tried to stand up without waking me

 

And every time

I would sit up and watch you go

 

And every time

I heard your door click shut

 

I would lean back on my pillow

And cry

 

I remember when

Daddy left

  ~~~~~~~~~~~~

ADDITIONAL READING:

DUST MOTE

!¡Anger¡!

BROKEN CIRCLE

Punishment or Neglect: Neither is Correct

I BELIEVE GOD INVENTED DANCING

~~~~~~~~~~~~
