          The children snore.

          Lying awake at night,

          Listening

          To the indrawn breaths and sighs,

          Memory tugs.

 

          I remember

          Other nights, clutching the baby

          To my heart,

          Hoping

          The love went through and pierced

          The lurking demons

          Ravaging her breath.

 

          Then, too, I laid awake long nights,

          Afraid

          The morning sun

          Would warm

          An empty crib.

 

          But God and the years

          Abolished

          That moment’s terror;

          The motor purr and coughs of sleep

          Are reassuring hymns of night.

 

          And though their lives

          Are not finished,

          Not mine—

          Just rough works

          Awaiting

          Master strokes—

          The symphony of snores

          And smiles evoked by unknown dream

          Are what there is of me

          That’s good through time.
