Sleeping safe from harm

Updated on September 20, 2012

I cannot find the words

My mind and pen is dry

To understand our problems

How they came or why


To you I can say one thing

Which I know is true

With the first breath that you took

My soul belonged to you


And soon my precious child

You'll be back in my arms

In the shelter of your first home

Peaceful sleeping safe from harm

      Absolutely beautiful. I wish we could just always be close to the ones we love and the ones we share our souls with. At the same time, we are lucky to have loved ones that we care so much about that it hurts so deeply when we're apart. Thank you for sharing.
