While You Were Sleeping

Thanks to Alistair Lane for a beautiful poem to start the day.

A Certain Point of View

While you were sleeping,
a million hearts’ first beatings…

A million souls depart,
their tales now all told…

A million songbirds sang
in a Mexican choral wave,
spreading wings around the world…

A million lessons learned,
a million fingers burned…

A million hands found the glove that fits their soul…

A million stars twinkled, distant and bright…
A million children curled up, safe in the night…

And one lonely shepherd, shaken to his core,
Knowing he loved you, a little bit more.
