I pray to sleep every night
And hope to God you hear me,
Wrapped in rosary,
Drenched in kisses from
Everyone except you.
We read our bibles at night
And discover magic between the lines,
We discover power under our blankets,
We discover vulnerability
In interlocked fingers.
We sing hymnals in our heavy sighs,
Feeling God every time we touch.
Saturday turns to Sunday
And in the glow of a sunrise
Peaking between the creamy curtains,
Our soft bodies come alive with the spirit.
Everything is easier.
Everything is holy.
