All Because You Kissed Me Goodnight

?As they lowered her casket in the snow?? that was the last line of the poem ?Class Ring?, written by Sandy Roistan. It was one of the saddest, written poetry when I was in high school. The poem used to be everywhere and even on forwarded emails and everyone was claiming to have written it.

I liked how she did her rhymes. ?All Because You Kissed Me Goodnight? was also written by Sandy Roistan and it was the first poem I read that had brilliant wordplay in it (you don?t get to read much creative writing back in highschool).


All because you kissed me goodnight

I climbed the door, and opened the stairs,
Said my pajamas and put on my prayers,
Then turned off the bed and crawled into the light,
All because you kissed me goodnight.

Next morning, I woke and scrambled my shoes,
Polished my eggs and toasted the news,
I couldn’t tell my left from my right,
All because you kissed me goodnight.

That evening at last, I felt normal again,
So I picked up my mother, and called up the phone,
I spoke to the puppy and threw dad a bone
Even at midnight, the sun was still bright,
All because you kissed me goodnight.

Sandy Roistan
