Donal Mahoney- A Poem


The older he gets 
the darker the bedroom
and the brighter the light
streaming under the door

when he wakes up again
in the middle of the night 
with pain and thinks about 
what's on the other side. 

Far better than the gifts piled
under his parents' Christmas tree 
when he was a boy laughing down
three flights of stairs to see. 

Donal Mahoney lives in St. Louis, Missouri.
