Sleepless 

There are so many reasons 

not

to sleep. 

Let me count the ways:

Concern for your child;

Fear of environmental disasters;

Qualms about a rising tide of fascism;

Regret for missteps and hurt that

stopped love;

and the dull ache of heart 

and limbs that 

comes from loss. 

You still feel his arms 

around you 

like a phantom limb. 

So many thoughts to make you

sleepless.

One thought on “Sleepless 

  1. Gracious moments… reminds me of light after much darkness that one can experience as you have of one you dearly loved who has moved onto another dimension in God’s kingdoms.
