At this moment...

Peaceful children slumbering in their beds.

A few moments just for me.

My eyes focused on a blank canvas

Words swirling, constructing thoughts, pictures developing.

Dreaming, remembering, always treasuring these boys.

Looking forward with joy, anxious anticipation.

Looking back at beautiful memories made,

At this moment and those gone.

My heart, full; my soul, tranquil.
