Mother sings

Child cries in the night

Afraid of darkness

That looms.

She sings for the child

A lullaby calm

Silence.

Child cries in the night

Calming lullaby

She sings.

A mothering sound

She utters loving

Words calm.

The heart is longing

For mother in darkness

That looms.

Child cries

Mother sings

Calm ensues lovingly.
