Poetry: Gentle Lullaby

By Monica C. Voskamp


Still your soul.

Quiet now.

The day is done

There’s no need to

Worry more.


You’ve worked hard

Carried far too much.

You’ve given every ounce

Of human strength.

The rest now

Divine unfolds.


So hush,

Be still gentle soul.

Let all that stresses drain away

Let all the comfort of warm nights

Soothe you now.


Skin pressed close

Heartbeats one

Gentle hug

Relax yourself.


It’s time to sleep so quiet now

Close your eyes, rest your mind

Listen to this melody,

My gentle lullaby.


Always hope. Always believe. Always love. ❤
