I know you’re there

I caught a glimpse

A gentle smile

Oh fontanelle


You raised your hat

I saw a wink

The laughter roared

The briefest spell


The ups and downs

Our life endures

Keep us at bay

To keep you well


You hide your eyes

The brim so wide

You speak of pain

These years of hell


I knock on wood

It’s grown so strong

Recoiling from

The love I tell


And now you’re gone

So silence says

No hurt can reach

No fontanelle


One thought on “Poetic nervousness
