When the shadows of twilight
hum a soothing hymn,
softly some sleepy trees join in
Heads under tired wings
trust the darkness
to hold up the sky till dawn blinks

A glow of light warms a cold window sill
A mother sits praying, a baby dreams
Her reassuring heartbeats
ease out the day’s aches
She watches over her tiny bit of the world
her woes dissolving in a lapful of love

She stays awake
and a part of the restless night
gratefully sleeps
