expecting


i’m expecting my baby home
any time
expecting her to open
the door
and greet me with that
smile
i haven’t seen
since telling me
she never felt more alive

Christopher’s Lullaby


Your eyes are like oceans
So wide and so deep
They’ve been through the calm
And the storm
They’re ready for sleep

Oh baby sweet baby
Hush and hide your eyes
Seek all your treasures
Be surprised what you find

Your boat is floating
Your sails all tucked in
You’re near the shore
Near the port
Soon you’ll be dreamin’

Oh baby sweet baby
Hush and hide your eyes
Seek all your treasures
Be surprised what you find

Your eyes don’t pretend
Their blue’s nearly gone
They’ve endured enough
For one day
They’ll be docked until dawn

Oh baby sweet baby
Hush and hide your eyes
Seek all your treasures
Be surprised what you find

Your journey has ended
You’re tired and beat
You’re in my arms
In my heart
Your day is complete

Oh baby sweet baby
Hush and hide your eyes
Never be alone in this world
Please always be mine

the city is near


I merge onto route one
around midnight
a cup of coffee
shaking in my hand
another placed
in the holder

in the back seat
my darling exhales angrily
pleading with baby
and begging the lord
to give us more time

I race past the limit
chasing the new moon
and hugging the white line
laughing at the thought
I’m a daddy any minute
