The moment before dawn

When I wake
I watch you in your silent slumber

And wonder

Are your dreams where you find
Sanctuary or
Are you brought down to your knees
A million times over

Punished for your failings

Like there is no definite distinction between
Night and day

I watch you in sleep
As I watch you in life

And can’t help the feeling
That I
Failed to protect you.
