THE SILENT SENTINEL

bedsideangel

Half awake…..half asleep

Eyes slowly open and there he is

A towering white fog of a figure standing by my bedside

Angelic watchman, steadfast at his post, never tired or bored

Watching someone sleep must be so very tedious yet there he is

Heaven-sent,  my very own personal bodyguard.

As consciousness increases, he slowly fades away

He will return again, I know, in the softness of night

in the obliviousness of my deep slumber.

    You have so much talent!
    This was beautiful 🙂

    • Dear Sophie…..thank you so much for your kind words. I’ve been in a bit of a dry spell regarding writing but
      recently received a new spurt of inspiration. Writers are so hard on themselves, si? no? The worse thing is
      to compare myself to others. I have my own voice, experiences, revelations as do the others, so no need to
      beat myself up. Your words were like a much needed shot in the arm. A million thank you’s. I will be sure to stop by at your blog and read some of it. Thanks again. Tovah
