Run With Unicorns

So peaceful here

Watching you sleep

Quiet now in slumber

I wish to stroke your face

Hold your tiny hand

So close to me

Yet a million miles away

The machines beep

Each sound a beating heart

How long now?

A day, a night a lifetime?

My breath fogs the glass

Between me and you

Tubes, oh so many tubes

For one so little

You are strong

I whisper again

Don’t wake now

To see my tears

Stay in your dreams

Be still

Run with unicorns

Until you wake

To find me

So close

Yet a million miles away

Here my love always

In 2011 I became the father to a child with special needs, a different type of perfect beautiful girl to add to my equally perfect (in a normal way) son. As my journey continues I find my best way to vent my feelings good and bad is through writing. This blog is for me to get my emotions out, if this can help another family like mine it would be great. My feelings are not rare in families like mine, maybe someone seeing some of their feelings in my words will make them feel a little less alone. Please feel free to comment or contact me at anytime, I look forward to your feedback. Kelly "Boy" Dugan
