kind, gentle eyes
reflecting centuries of wisdom
skin, papery-thin
wrapping delicate hands.
you’re so small
and so precious,
you have known me all along.
i would hate to see you go
but i know
it’s sunset already.
make sure you fall asleep
content and warm
and dream of the ones you love(d).

let me know
when the time comes.
