Then I Know...A Hublet

A Child Stirs

and softly cries

Gently lifting the warm softness in my arms

I sit to rock her back to sleep

Her cheek rests against my shoulder

Her head nestling in the hollow of my cheek

I can feel her soft hair gently brushing against it

After a time, her breathing slows, a sigh escapes her lip and

she returns to the sleep only the untroubled soul of children can have

It is then

In the dark of night

a warm child sleeping in my arms

That I lean my head back

Hold on tight

Smile and know

There is a God

Beautiful poem! I never had children, but I remember when my nephew was born, and I went to visit my sister. I held him as he slept. After returning home, I can remember that for months, I would find myself thinking how badly I wanted to hold him again...that thinks would be all right if I could do so. So peaceful!
