Experiencing Interruptions?



Sleep, my child, and know I’m here.
I’m far from home.
I run away from scorched earth, away from mouths full of ground,
where only white noise you can hear and people’s hearts are bleeding losses.

Sleep, my child. I’m here
with the strength my grandma taught me,
with all the Love my mother gave me.
Sleep, my child, and know
all this Love is fully yours.

And even if you’ll never be born, my baby, this love is my only hope.
