Son

“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.
