Welcome back…

“Welcome back…”

Drip, Drip, drip, drip.

Wipe, Wipe, wipe, wipe.

“Thank you, have a great day.”

Cough, Cough, cough, sneeze.

Whine, Whine, whine, cry.

“Take this, it will make you feel better.”

Slurp, Slurp, slurp, slurp.

Wind howling, rain pouring, darkness all around.

“Waaaahhhhhh.”

A little voice sounds in the night.

“Which one is that?”

Shuffle, shuffle, creak, creak.

“What’s wrong son?”

“I’m sick, Daddy.”

Crying.

Head kissed, tucked in.

“It’s okay, pal. Want me to sing Jesus Loves Me?”

Shuffle, shuffle, creak, creak.

“That was Isaac, love.”

……………

Wind howling, rain pouring, darkness all around.

“Waaaahhhhhh.”

A little voice sounds in the night.

“Which one is that?”

Shuffle, shuffle, creak, creak.

“What’s wrong sweat heart?

“I’m sick, daddy.”

Whining.

Head kissed, tucked in.

“It’s okay, love. Want me to sing Bless the Lord O My Soul?”

Shuffle, shuffle, creak, creak.

“That was Ava, love.”

…………..

Times by four.

Repeat throughout the night.

………….

“Welcome back to school!”

Christian
