Don’t you spend your nights twisting and turning
sweating and shivering
spend your days planning and preparing
perfecting and paving
I am here
I will protect you from the demons of your past
those who hover over your head haunting you most nights.
I will cradle you in my soft arms and sing you back to sleep.
Don’t awaken mid lumber shaking with fear no more,
for I am with you always–a cashmere wrap to warm you
A constant reminder that no matter the weather,
you are safe with me beside you.
