BEDTIME

The night so calming, with all the lights off,

The fresh evening air wafts so gently and soft,

Soft glowing streetlights faintly break through the darkness,

Feelings of security strip the dark of its starkness,

I lay in my bed, comforting pillows and quilt,

Relaxing my mind, the harsh busy day wilts,

Humming from the fan breaks the motionless silence,

The television off, no excitement or violence,

The cats are curled up, snuggled close to keep warm,

All of us tucked in, as if preparing for storms,

Our eyes are all closed, and our breaths become slow,

Together in the darkness with the warm outside glow,

Minds are at peace and drifting to bliss,

Awakened in the morning by my little girls kiss.
