Soft whispers

2015-03-28 15.58.20-2

In soft whispers
the night has fallen down
like a gentle cover
to shield the town

Cherry blossoms spread
on the path
like a bed of petals
where your dreams
tread on the ground
Flowers turned their heads
to hear a fairytale that
Trees will tell
while the birds pulled the night cover
from the sky
to let us rest
as we close our eyes

As you dream
lay your heart to rest
may all the worries
that you carry during the day
find shelter in a drawer near
your bed,
in the night
may God write you a
good-morning note
over them
and leave you blessings
in the drawer
to take in the dawn
instead
