Don’t Turn The Light Out

His Voice Calls Out From ‘neath Covers
Pulled Up Above His Chin
He’s Had A Long Day Of Playing Hard
But His Imagination Just Keeps Going
These Words He Often Spoke To Me
Just Before He’d Fall Asleep
To Enter Boyhood Dreams That Stretch
So Far, So High, So Deep

“Don’t Turn The Light Out, Daddy
And Please Don’t Close The Door
There’s A Monster In The Closet
And Beneath The Bedroom Floor
If You Leave It Open, Daddy
I Know I Can See Your Face
If You Don’t Turn The Light Out, Daddy
I Know That I’ll Be Safe.”

But Now I Lay Upon My Bed
I’m Old And Letting Go
It’s Time To Turn My Light Out, Son
It’s Time To Close My Door
I Try To Say To Him That
There’s No Need To Cry
Everyone Must Go Beyond This World
Everyone One Must Die

With Tears Of Sadness
He Kneels Beside My Bed
And In Prayer To Our Lord God
Here Is What He Softly Said
“Don’t Turn The Light Out, Father
Don’t Take The Light I’ve Had
Let Him Stay With Me Some More
Please Don’t Take Away My Dad”

He Turns His Eyes To Me Once More
His Tear Streams Flow
He Reaches For My Aged Hand
And Holds It Ever Gently So
I Turn Toward My Loving Son
And Smile A Weary Smile
I Say To Him With Final Breath
What He Has Known All The While

“though My Light Goes Out In This World
And The Door Is Closed For Me
I Go To A Better Place, Where
My Light Will Shine Eternally
One Day When Your Time Is Done
You’ll Cross The Veil Of Night
You Will Find Me Once Again
And You’ll Be Within The Light”

“god Never Turns The Light Out, Son
He Never Closes The Door
He Leaves It Open All The Time
So You Can See Him Forever More
Remember This When Your Own Child
Comes To You Late At Night
And Asks You Not To Close The Door
And To Not Turn Out The Light”
