Through the night

by thelifesavour

And just like that you did it.

No warning. No tantrums. No fanfare.

Only a few extra bedtime kisses,

for me and the kangaroo,

as if maybe you knew,

you wouldn’t see us for a while,

(a whole nine and a half hours)

and you needed enough, to see you through the night.

This post is written as a reminder, in case it never happens again, or a least not for a long while, and I end up thinking that maybe I dreamt it, or rather imagined it, as I didn’t dream. You may have slept through the night, but I hardly slept at all. It seems I have forgotten how to.
