A Mother’s Wish

No worries to wake you,
no words left to say,
no doubt you are loved
in every way.
No longing for shelter,
no concept of fear,
no question the angels
are holding you near.

Only sweet dreams and kisses
at the end of each day,
only sunshine to greet you
when you’re ready to play.
May God grant you exemption
from troubles and strife,
may you sleep like a baby
every night of your life.
