In the Silence

I am
here
between chores and diapers and meals
quieted

No five-teeth smiles
or little boy hugs
to "the best mommy in the whole world"
sweeten this moment

Furnace and fridge
hum a lullaby
to the man of my dreams
recovering
for another day
of work and fatherhood

I am
in twilight
where moods are
neither bright or dark
and night
may still be
cloudy or full of stars

I am
neither lonely
nor alone
as my soul settles
waiting
for His whisper
