A Restless Night (by Joe DiMino)


Often I have looked at stars-
and thought each the twinkle
in a distant eye--
or a candle flickering
far yonder deep,
where a throng of Mimis
search without sleep....

Where is that confounded key?-
the one that fits my book of prayer-
the one I take to heaven and share
all I relinquish
and all I wish to bear--
