Army Mom’s Safe Haven

Christina: Request

REQUEST

If I should not wake
from sleep, when darkness turns to light
Here is what I ask of you:
Fond memories late at night.
Do not burden your heart with sorrow
for that only causes pain.
Don't dread to face tomorrow
I will never come again.
But, when it's quiet, dark and calm
Read for me some simple poem,
and I will know.
