songs in the night…

songs in the night

there were
no reasons
to sing
but
amal
sang the song
that
his parents
had taught him
as a child
amal the smart
his hair is fair and tidy
whoever loves you will kiss you
he paused
as
he placed
the last stone
on their grave
but whoever hates you
will have problems
he turned
and
walked
away
no longer
a child of ten
but
an old man
of war
singing
sleep
sleep
i wish
i could
have offered you
a dove
