Wings Casting Shadows


Wings Casting Shadows

 

Drifting on whispers that gently tuck you in,

doting sweet words to never grow old

Bestowed upon a smile - warmed by a kiss,

blessings and comforts in the surrounding's hold

 

Bundled in cradle - tended by watchful eyes,

care that assures every breath rises and falls

A guarding angel - sits mother by your side,

wings casting shadows upon Heaven's walls

 

Beneath a halo from love's gathered light,

numinous presence - the quiescence for sleep

Shimmering radiance - heart of one's home,

soft bosom providing nurturing keep

 

Cross over into the soothing glow's touch,

slumber continues beyond what's seen

With moonlight's shine, you dance with every star,

'till time to awaken - her sun's brightest sheen

 

******************

 

Into her arms -  your wish to always be,

but life's days grow gray and eternity calls

Though soul to rise - sits mother by your side,

wings casting shadows upon Heaven's walls
