Son Shine






I tried to teach you lessons

that I never learned,

preached about passions,

the bridges I burned,

and I spoke of the world

like it was somewhere I had been,

warned you away from girls,

take it all away, unclean,

that anthem, that screamer,

I almost coughed up a lung,

this daft, old daydreamer,

born old to die young,

thankfully, you did not listen,

too much like your dad,

I leave proud tears to glisten

on memories we have had.





I love you, sunshine.
