Goodnight. By CpSingleton © 2016
Your shadow is fading,
Waving one last time,
Before the blackest cloud in the wide sky swallows your sun.
Tell the angels thanks from me
When they finally lay their
Warm, woollen hands upon your narrow shoulder.
They did well with you.
Each gentle smile you lent the world was borne from
A golden heart.
Each syllable uttered
Crafted from rays of love.
Goodnight, sweet humility,
Your humble step will not be forgotten, but
Will be the lamp
That I carry to light my own path.
