Goodnight Time - Poem by Zooey Lichty

Goodnight Time
Goodnight past; Goodnight present; Goodnight-
Goodnight thing that scares me
Goodnight thing (creature) that haunts me every waking moment
Goodnight age; Goodnight continuance; Goodnight lastingness
Oh how I wish it was goodbye –
Goodbye Time
But ‘tis not Goodbye yet only Goodnight
For soon I shall wake up in the present,
Mourn the past
Fear the future-
And say hello to time
So as the sun goes down I say goodnight to the past
Dream about the future
And say hello to the present
Goodmorning world; Goodmorning time; Goodmorning present
Goodnight Time
