out there somewhere
the husband negotiates traffic
wishing to come home to a waiting wife
out there a little girl scans her thoughts
putting herself to sleep with names
to pair for her future baby brother
as here i sit exhausted but mind alive

connecting the thoughts
of husband and daughter
drawing them near to my dreams
to light true wishes near fulfilling
as they await for me to fill the page
alive, someone they could touch, in their midst
