Peace from the Cold

The cold creeps in as night falls. She piles the covers on to keep her body warm. An ache for a peaceful night of sleep, it seems is all that she seeks.

With every toss and turn a prayer she says "Please send no more nightmares." Therefore the fire rages on inside her mind. In hopes that one day she will find that peaceful place where her body can finally rest and unwind.

No more sickness, no more worry, no more stress, but for now she piles the covers on, makes sure her family is safe and warm, gives them all her love, and says good-night, closes her eyes and holds on tight.

      As a mother who knows what this mother suffers, I can feel the despair in her life. Thanks for sharing this poem. This is the 26th and final hub I am reading today honoring the victims of Sandy Hook. I read this poem in memory of Allison N. Wyatt, 7/03/06, female

      What a sweet little piece, almost a poem. Just some warmth, some peace, is all the mother desires for children and herself. Lovely.

      Hi Millermanda53. Yes, in this world of greed and avarice and the constant chase of wealth, thinking it will be all that we need, we overlook the truth. What we all need is 'peace of mind' When we realise this life can be a lot easier. Thank you.
