Meeting For Worship

The night time ritual is this:
After story and the Bible story
Only the hall light burns
And in a relative darkness we dwell
This seven year touch of life that is our daughter
She supine in my Mother's old bed
I sitting on the white toy chest.
She often asks that I remain a while
And almost always I comly
And after shenanigans a silence comes
In which I wonder about God
Or perhaps even the ways of politicians.
It is our silent meeting for worship.
Almost always it is holy
Despite the missing facing bench.

Bible stories and bedtime prayers. A wonderful tradition which every child should enjoy. Your daughter will never forget these quiet hours which you have spent together. Quite lovely, Bill. Warm regards, Sandra
