Goodnight - Poem by salma mansoor

love, happiness and pain
fools ands smart's
just a game

I hear the lullaby,
a little girl with the doll in her arms
it's time to say goodnight.
crying, whispering to her,
let it go, let it just go,
you'll be safe, sleeping with the closed EYES,
and a lost smile,
the strange smile, she could never find.
it's time to say goodnight.
