Write a lullaby, she said.
Maybe if you write
a lullaby
The soothing words and melody
Will help you
and feel at peace.

Picture a rocking chair
Gently creaking
a comforting rhythm.
Warm hands and arms,
holding you close enough
to feel
the beating of someone else’s heart.
Back and forth,
Back and forth.
Until sleep comes.
