Storm Inspired

A Mother's Touch

It starts storming
and you wake up, startled
you hide under your blanket
and cover your ears
hoping either the storm will pass
or you will fall back to sleep

Neither happens
you take deep breathes and make dua'
your mom wakes up, thinking of you
and comes to your room

You move over
and she hugs you
giving you a rub until you fall asleep

She stays by you until morning comes
and you thank her
and you both thank God.
