An Empty Bedroom


The moon in all its fullness is sharing its light 
The trees tuck themselves in as if to sleep through the night 
Shadows run quietly to hide themselves from view 
The grass waiting to be kissed by the morning dew

The world now quiet except the crickets chirp way
Sounding the alarm to close out another day
My heartbeat getting louder it sounds in my ear
My thoughts bring discomfort my eyes form a tear

The thought of my kids going away once again
Tears at my heartstrings and pulls at my skin
I’m a weekend dad with no rights the courts say
I stare in at their bedroom the area where they play

Not having them there to kiss them goodnight
Telling I love them as I hug them so tight
Not tucking them in I got a story to read
The stain on their sheets from when my heart bleeds

I know this is won’t change due to a decision I’ve made
Hearing my heart break is the price that I’ve paid
I hope they understand the pain that is felt
I hope they don’t blame me for the cards they were dealt

I love them without ceasing and I miss them so much
Not having them there to hold or to touch
Until the weekend comes and I see them once more
I’ll stare at an empty bedroom with toys on the floor
