Leave the Light On

English cottage garden

“Please leave the Light on Mommie,”
her small voice made request.
“Light makes darkness go away
that’s when I sleep the best.”

 Mommie left the door a-jar
for Light to make it’s way
into Jennie’s bedroom so
the dark would go away.

Some friends warned “you spoil her,
you’ll let her grow up weak.”
Mommie did what she thought best
her Jennie was unique.

Jennie’s bold as bold can be
that is, in light of day.
Conqures any obstacles
that dare get in her way.

 Walked through life with bravery
most ‘sighted’ children lack.
To overcome, fear of night
she’d yet to gain the knack.

Peeked in on her babe asleep
with Light upon her face.
Wrapped in comfort of the Light
cocooned with-in His grace.

Somehow Jennie sensed the Light,
and so could be at rest.
Mommie left the door a-jar
and did what she thought best.
