A Good Night Prayer

A single star among the many
Nightly visits from her mommy
Sings the song sung while rocking
Paused for butterfly kisses, smiling
A babe in arms held tight
For wishes of a life, bright
Sunny dresses with little pink bows
Fresh air strolls
Nap time stories
Bathed in her glories
Yesterday’s wishes
Today’s reminisces
A good night prayer
Her heart lays bare
To a sadness left aching
In a memory forsaking
Cherished always
Her heart sways
In a world that slumbers
A mother wonders
Did she have to die
Answers never given
Just a silence from heaven
