A Midsummer’s Night

 

I awoke during a midsummer’s night

I sat up in bed, and wondered

“What have I gotten myself into?”

My eyes focused and the darkness became clear.

I noticed that my daughter of two years, who sleeps in her bed snugged next to ours,

Was fast asleep halfway in-between beds

Her feet where in her bed, and her top half was upon ours

It was as if her journey to climb into our bed was stopped short, and

Comfort set in, and the journey was declared over.

I smiled to myself and gently moved her back into her bed where she slept in peace.

As sleep began to set back in I repositioned myself and my slumbering eyes

Gazed upon another figure in the dark.

She was asleep lying on her back.  There was a smile upon her face.

Her head was resting on her hands, elbows out.

It seemed as if she was in heaven, in complete rest from the hectic life she lives.

She was not in heaven, but in perfect rest.

Satisfaction filled my heart.

Knowing that the two women I love most in life where resting in complete joy.

I then lay back down and fell asleep.

And then I knew exactly what I got myself into.
