Making the Bed

Today I made my bed
I knew the gift that had finished
the dreams becoming dust
but not the one that must begin

I pulled the sheets up tight
knowing no need for fright
the blankets next
for warmth tonight
my day’d begun
the gift of breath
within my lungs.

I smoothed the spread
and prayed for the day
To be covered and kept
that I might detect.
I made a pact to follow the Light
as I pulled the sheets up tight.

About Mary Herbert

I am a gentle listener, a woman of few words. My journey through life has been a spiritual one, as well as a physical one. My daughter, Katie, and I thought it would be interesting to combine some of our giftings/talents in a blog and see what happens. Let us know what you think!
