Little Dreamer

She sleeps, curled on her side,
back arched as if she is reaching
for something only she can see.
As if she has come to save the day?

Blankets flung behind her like a cape in the wind
she sleeps, curled on her side.
Her face, relaxed from its usual sunny smile.
Lashes rest lightly on round, pinkened cheeks.

I wonder what she dreams, smiles and frowns,
mercurial, dance across her lips.
She sleeps, curled on her side.
What fears creep into her sleeping peace, wreaking havoc?

I don’t know where the night will take you,
but I will be here when you wake.
A prayer and gentle kiss for my little dreamer,
she sleeps, curled on her side.
