i remember
waiting for you
so foreign
so emotional
for my joy
to be their loss

and then they handed
you to me
and i was lost
to loving you

you fill
my days with laughter
you keep
me running, always
you are
my son, forever

How many? they ask
and I hold you in my mind
like a dream, like a secret prize
In the shadows of my heart
you age
through a veil, through a glass
you are alive
my daydreams keep time
losing teeth, climbing trees, sweaty sleeping blonde heads
always with me
in the shadows of my heart
And I am so rich
with my arms overflowing
laughter all around me
laughter in me
but always 
the laughter beyond me

weeping room

every room is a weeping room
where we fight
to hope, to surrender

every room is a weeping room
even we we laugh

every room is a weeping room
shadows and angels
dreams and eternity

every room is a waiting room
for the room where there's no more weeping
