Melrose - Morning Check - Poem by Darwin Henry Beuning

Hallways darkened!
Walking quickly
Toward the room
Pen light in hand

Slowly entering
Mother's room
Not too far
'Motion Alarm'

Shining a light
On mom from afar,
Gentle breathing
I observe

Backing out slowly
Not to disturb
Another dawn
She will observe
