Footsteps
By Lauren Marrero

I’m sleeping, dreaming waiting for morning
As I wake to a noise
Footsteps in my bedroom?
But, Everyone’s asleep?
I close my eyes and lay back down
As I wake again to this noise
Footsteps in my bedroom?
Everyones still asleep
I lay back down and shake my head
Go back to sleep I say
Sleeping, Dreaming waiting for morning
Awaken by a feeling
I open my eyes and see a presence
Right above my bed
I do not speak I do not scream
For it is an angel
Watching over me
I close my eyes and smile to myself
And go back to sleep
Footsteps in my bedroom
Please don’t go away
I am safe now where I lay.
My brother mark who has passed
I know that it is you
You’re my guardian
My angel up above
The one I miss with all my love
The one that is watching over me
As I soundly sleep.
