"Mommy! Mommy! Mommy!"
I awake from my stupor
Find myself gliding
Across the carpet
To your bedside

Before I've even registered
I'm awake
At an hour fit for the dead
Your soul calls my sleeping
To awake

Blinking I subconsciously
Arrive to rescue
My baby girl
Bringing love and peace
And comfort

"It's okay, Megsy."
Filling your sleep
With subdued dreams

Kissing your
Soft, sweet cheeks
Stroking your
Silky locks
Hoping I've succeeded

In tucking
you back in
In grabbing those
scary dreams
And taking them far, far away

In helping you to know that
You are loved
Have no dreams to fear
That your dreams will take you
Far, far in this life

Sleep my baby girl
