I don't know what keeps her up . I have only the words she shares. But I cannot feel her feelings. I cannot know what really pulls her from sleep or what holds her awake. Is there a magic mum mantra I could whisper again and again to cocoon her in loving quietude; into some assurance of safety, of peace?

Sleep, please tell my baby that you come in peace.

That in her, there is peace.

That you and she can meet there.

And remember each other.
