Left the Car Running
Played the It character while they hid behind the stars.
I counted to infinity, could their giggles.
I’ve been a child with the universe.
I tucked the night away after it held the world.
Walked the sunrise to the road so it could take over for a while.
Whispered to the clouds of storms to behave themselves.
I have been a parent with the world.
Now, I haven’t forgotten about you.
My words have me pretending like I don’t see you.
But I know you are there, I promise I do.
Come along with me, to see the universe.
I left the car running on the edge of existence.
