Five-Minute Friday: Still

In the quiet,

in the softness,

in the long shadows

of midnight,

I stir from sleep

{for no known reason}

and sneaksosilently

into the boys' bedroom

lay my hands on their small

backs

rhythmically rising and falling

and pray

that they would know

the greatness of a Presence

that fills the stillness

of their souls

in both the stolen

moments of daylight

and

in the quiet,

in the softness,

in the long shadows

of midnight.
