30 Steps

January 6, 2008

on the dark winter’s walk
betwixt warm car
and back door

sharp air pierces
the fabric
of your footie pajamas

the wide world
muffled
by your hood

one cheek cold,
the other pressing
on your dad’s shoulder

my dear
please forgive
the slowing gait

I’ll lay you
in your warm bed
soon enough

for now,
I want you to know
as I know

in your flesh
and in your bones
that your daddy loves you
