Dear dwellers of this empty nest,
my joy before the loneliness,
the bricks are chipping;
the wood splitting.
I will colapse
the moment you aren't living.

I once felt your weight distributed-
now a mass combined.
Fifteen steps dread the last descent,
remembering your second-born's first climb.

Returning with her in youth,
as she relearns to walk, talk, and fight,
I will rekindle the strength I had
on every Sunday night.

From the shelves in the cupboard
you could never reach,
to the grains of sand
left on children's feet-

From the city in front
the country around back,
to the clothes in closets
never unpacked-

Please come see us one more time.
Let us have a proper good-bye.
Go along now.
Go along.
The ivy-covered light
will always stay on.
Stay on
Stay on
