Goodnight Moon

It’s about ritual. About everyday things. About the comfort of waking up the next day to the same sights and sounds.

Goodnight room. Goodnight moon.

It’s about the small things. About memories. About paying attention and caring.

Goodnight cow, jumping over the moon. Goodnight light and the red balloon.

It’s about coming to a realization that you can care more. And want to care more. Possibly about someone else.

Goodnight bears. Goodnight chairs. Goodnight kittens. Goodnight mittens.

It’s about wanting to be happy. And content. With life. And sharing that. Possibly with someone else.

Goodnight clocks. And goodnight socks. Goodnight little house. Goodnight mouse.

It’s about finding and gathering the courage to do something that should have been done ages ago. And accepting the consequences.

Goodnight comb, and goodnight brush. Goodnight nobody. Goodnight mush.

It’s about accepting what this makes you in the eyes of others. Accepting a new major change.

And goodnight to the old lady whispering, “hush”.

It’s about me.

Goodnight stars. Goodnight air.

It’s about me.

Goodnight noises everywhere.

It’s about me.
