From the mouths of babes the saying goes,
so young and having not yet learnt to lie
everything they think on their face shows.
So when asleep between us I saw his eye
suddenly spring open I immediately froze.
He sat up, losing his dummy and with a sigh
stared into the dark saying repeated hello’s,
the only word that he said,
to somebody not there,
at the corner of the bed,
as he continued to stare,
into the pitch black.
