Restlessly, I woke
In the middle of the night
One Day
Moonbeam shinning
Filtering through an open window
Blessing the darkness within
Nutralizing the shadows
That lingered without sin.

It was a beautiful night
Warm, silent, still
All around
Within I can sense a man
Sitting on a chair, next to my bed.

Even though
I am unable to see him
I could tell he was gentle
Big, no hair, bold that is
White beard, mustache
Just sitting there
Staring at me, going nowhere.

Haven't seen, his lips move
Yet I knew, he was talking to me
Or was he thinking out loud?
Said he remembered this night.

Sixty-two years ago
I had a dream, he said
Saw myself old, in a dark room
Sitting on a chair.

Didn't want to make any noise
Near the crib, I sat
Listening to my first born
Sleeping restlessly.

The fullmoon's, silvery beams
Shone through, the window blinds
Pilfering the glum
from within the room.

I gently took a peek
At the pride of my life
The blanket to see
An aging gentle of a man
Restlessly, trying to sleep.

This is wonderful, William and at the same time a haunting
of the similarity from child to man to like child again.
Superb poem!
