Happy Belated Father’s Day!
I walked across the shadows
A dream my eye could see
In precious books held in my arms
Until I reached the sea.
I sailed into the sunset
Until I felt the sky’s tears
I saw the lightning break the sky
I heard the cry of bears
My paper leaves were blown away
From branches of my desperate hands
I’m left all alone
To dream of shadow lands
Some evenings I will look up
To see the sky’s cold, empty looks
A sigh, closed eye, a lonely moan,
Lamenting for the books.
