A New Cradle

Of love, loss, and hope

Photo of mother and baby by Ulkar - purchased by the author

Twilight sleep sparks linger

My womb a lonely cradle

Empty

Cold

Between breasts never suckled

His light I dare hope

Glimmers

Dances

Perhaps he lives yet

Sleeping still a dream

Warm

Embraced

In a new cradle
