My pillow is soft beneath my head.
The covers are fresh. They were washed today.
Scents of nature all around me play.
I fold my hands and I say my prayers.
I thank God for His everlasting care.
I give thanks for the blessings He gives to me.
For ears that can hear and eyes that see.
I thank him for my family and loving friends.
I tell him I am grateful for the peace He lends.
Amen! I say, then I turn out the light.
My room is awash by a moonlit night.
God is all around me, I can feel His presence
Angels surround me with their loving essence.
My eyes are getting heavy, I begin to drift.
I fall asleep knowing this life is a gift!
