~ Conor falls from the sky ~

Sleep on this song. Rest,
your head on these notes.
Curl up against this lullaby,
love, as we weep love
into your blanket. Life
doesn’t always get to grow
into its mittens. See how
the memory of your hands
will always feel like a paw
caught in the trap
of our hearts. See how
grief is also a song.
