In the night...

I do not
Grudge
These moments
In the
Middle
Of the night.
The house
Sleeps on
And the World
Spins
Around us.
Appliances
Buzz
and
Whirr.
My husband
snores.
Niamh slumbers on.

Eilidh
is in my arms,
Cuddling
and
Snuggling.
Neither a symphony
Nor a cacophony
She snores
And purrs.

I try and
Snatch the
Good
From the middle of the night.
But my mind
Races
and
Ruminates.
I can not
Silence
My thoughts.

I want to be
Asleep,
Wrapped in
Warmth.
Sleep brings me
Peace.
A place to
Escape.
But sleep
Escapes
Me
for the present.

I try to be
Present
in the 
Present.
For me.
For Eilidh.

Eilidh
Sleeps
On,
Snuggled
into my
Body:
I find
Peace
in the
Moment.
