YOU DO NOT SLEEP
Reflections of you, I cherish and keep.
You are not gone - You do not sleep.
You are the sunshine that melts away the snow,
The whorls in our stream that curl and flow,
You are the gentle, quickening, springtime rain,
That coaxes the daffodils back again.
And the melody in my heart that still refrains.
In the lonely, darkest hour of night,
You are my solace and my light.
When I wake in the early morning hush,
You are the birds taking flight in an upward rush.
You do not sleep, you are not gone,
You're with me still at each new dawn.
To Leslie with love from Eileen ( my Mom)
