If only from a distance, I am with you

I smoothe your hair back
as you drift off
hoping you will sleep
(in peace) heavenly
dreaming of all
that you wanted at 16
climbing that ladder
one rung at a time

the snow falling
as you had hoped for
this Christmas eve eve
not softly
but violently

icy against the windows
your sleep deep now
lulled by my hand
and rhythms
not of this world
