I lie awake watching my little girl asleep,
I lie awake listening to her breathing sounds
I lie awake and ponder of events
that’s been and gone,
I lie awake and wonder what changes
we could have made.
I lie awake and realise
What deep love we have to give
To those encircled, round about us,
Encircling us with love.
I lie awake with gratitude for those who offered help
What love and friendship they adhere to,
To show they mean so much.
I lie awake listening to those gentle sounds of sleep
Breathed in and out so gently
Can be heard, not even a gentle squeak.
These kind & loving Angels
Our God has given us
To love and nourish, and care for
With our deep Eternal love.
