Good Night

The end of a busy day,

The lights go out and I slip into bed.

After fidgeting with the covers and getting comfortable,

I look your way and whisper, “good night.”

A moment I sit, patiently, quietly,

Waiting for a sound, a response.

My eyes strain in the dark

Looking for you, hoping to hear.

No acknowledgement,

No whisper in return,

No soft kiss ending our day together.

Our days have ended

In loneliness I turn,

Looking out the window I see stars and moon.

God, You are great, and You span both existences,

Only You see both her and I.

Please, for me, will You tell her good night?

I am the Director of Twin Oaks Family Care in Excelsior Springs, Mo. I hold a Master of Arts in counseling from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and, currently, am working on the Doctor of Ministry in Care and Counseling at MBTS. My wife and I were married in 1998 and we had 2 daughters. On July 26th, 2019, my lovely wife, Jana, was diagnosed with Leukemia and began treatment. On Aug 7th, 2019, she died of complications from the chemo treatment. God prepared us and sustains us. My way of grieving includes being open and transparent about my feelings. My hope is to provide a voice of support for others experiencing grief.
