Nighty-night


It is late at night, so I’ve come to  bed.

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!
