Sweet Slumber

Snuggling tightly,

sweet cherub girl

scoots up higher

and turns to rest her chin

on her mommy’s forehead.

Little arms encircle

her mother’s neck.

The engulfing embrace proclaiming

that mommy belongs to her at bedtime.

There’s no breaking free

until her arms release

like angel’s wings

that fly her

to slumber on that restful cloud

of knowing she loves and is loved.

An embrace to be savored,

A feeling to remember,

A love to draw upon.
