Poetry

Happy 9 to us…

I lie in bed

Staring at the shadows

I turn to my side and

I see you by my side

I wonder why the fear

When you are here

But the happy heart

Can’t quiet the restless mind

 

I walk down the corridors

Staring at the photos on the wall

Places, faces and smiles

What a good life it is

But the happy heart

Can’t quiet the restless mind

 

I stare at the moon

And all that shines in its light

Hoping to calm the shivers

I sway like the gentle breeze

But the happy heart

can’t quiet the restless mind

 

I Tip toe in to the room

Back into bed

Kisses for the little one

And the happy heart smiles

And then you shift on the other side

And hug me tight

And in the big bear arms

Quiets down the restless mind
