“Goodnight Daddy, I love you.”

For how much longer

will this be true?

Coming of age and

his eyes opening,

it will not belong

before he starts noticing.

That his Daddy is not strong

and is unable to undo any wrong,

instead he is weak and not

the hero that he seeks.

“Goodnight Son, I love you.”

Trying hard

to be there for you.

Hoping to show you

a good example,

not memories for you

to dismantle.
