Sundowners

Updated: Apr 11

She takes the candle off the mantelpiece,

Every night around 8:30.

She puts it on the table and we sit,

Every night around 8:30.

She grabs the matches and I help her lite,

Every night around 8:30.

She watches the flame and thinks about you,

Every night around 8:30.

She wonders where you are and if you’re safe,

Every night around 8:30.

She crawls in my lap and has a little cry,

Every night around 8:30.

She blows out the flame and gets ready for bed,

Every night around 8:30.

She brushes her teeth and washes her face,

Every night around 8:30.

She gets into bed and I tuck her in,

Every night around 8:30.

She looks at me and says “I miss my mom”,

Every night around 8:30.

I hold her tight and safe and pray for you,

Every night around 8:30.
