Goodnight Moon

by Ivan M. Granger


Original Language English

Beloved, tell me --

Why do you come
only when I
orphan my ambitions?

Why do you show
only when all hope
has fled?

Why, Honeyed Moon,
will you meet me
only on my funeral bed?

And, tell me --

Why won't the dead
stay dead?

-- from Real Thirst: Poetry of the Spiritual Journey, by Ivan M. Granger
