What I need you to KnowA Poem by Amanda Crandall
It speaks for itself
You awoke in terror
tiny lungs bleating my name
in the ambience of hopelessness.
Latent tears rested
Against your starlit eyes
I sang to you in earnest Close your eyes, sweet angel
Your brother resting in my arms Dream sweet dreams of your own
I made my solemn promise Nothing here can harm you
You understood me Nothing is set in stone
And bravely succumbed to sleep Rest now, and know this
As summers pass and you grow
I will always be with you
I will always love you so
