A Child’s Slumber

She lays…
Oh so peacefully she lays.
Her eyes close and forget
She forgets all her woes
Burying the tiresome antics
of the day
In the sanctity of a dream…
A dream soon to torment
her sleep
I watch as she flails
Arms outstretched
as the look of terror
Sweeps across her once
calm face
Her button nose scrunched
Her small lips pursed
Her eyes closed tight
She is scared
Yet I can’t wake her
I can’t move her
In fear of disturbing a
nightmare she needs.
As quickly as it starts its over
She wakes herself in fear
And a scream escapes
from her mouth
The tears roll down her face
as she holds on to me
So tight.
Seeking the solace of
a mothers hold.
I don’t let go
I will never let go
As softly she falls to slumber
once more…
