Poem: Lullabies at Grandma’s

For me
there is nothing quite
like night
When the black sky
is open wide
and the glowing moon
lends just the right
amount of light

I stare up
An out of this world sight
Memories oh memories
They flood my mind

As a kid
back at Grandma’s
in her lap I’d sit
as she introduced
tunes of the moon
I never knew
one day they’d end
and memories in the sky
would be all I have left

Then we’d go inside
She’d go to sleep
I’d lay in the floor
and watch tv
I remember all
the late night shows
All the nonstop
3 am commercials

Now those memories
they’re just that
Forever in my head
but never coming back

And sometimes
I almost forget
Then I look into the night sky
and for a brief second
I’m reminded
I relive it
again
and again

I’m back on her porch
sitting in her lap
watching the stars
and she lights a cigarette
In the night’s dim light
she sings me lullabies
wrapping me in her undying love
soothing the madness of my mind

But then I go inside
breaking my blurred sight
And to those memories
I say goodnight

For me
there is nothing quite
like my Grandma’s love
Lullabies
lending star-like light
in the darkest night
A love that
will never die
Even if to you
I’ve had to say goodnight
for the last
time
