Ken Around the Room

Some nights when
I look around the contours
of his teddy bear,
I discover
my son has followed his pillow
to the middle of the room.

He lies on the floor
with no cover against the cold,
away from those things
that might offer him comfort
when darkness tickles fear.

But, there is no fear
in his face,
his dreams tug the corners
of his mouth up,
his back is warm
and when I breathe
in his warmth
he is my smile.
