Back to Sleep

You aren't alone..

Lay down,

Ignore the pain,

Close your eyes,

Imagine it again-

You aren't alone,

There's someone with you,

Don't be lonely,

I am here.

Curl up close,

Careful- it hurts,

I'll hold you tight,

but gentle enough that it won't hurt you.

Tight hugs,

tight enough for closeness; safety,

soft enough it doesn't squeeze,

Are you okay?

I breathe

I leave

I go to school,

Back to bed-

Back to sleep.
