Wake up in that dimly-lit bedroom.
Wash away the lingering perfume.
Count your blessings, them give them back, then shout at the heavens.
Hear them praying in the streets, all their answers incomplete,
"Why does every infant weep and whimper in its sleep?
Do demons come to steal our dreams or did God leave us incomplete?"
Count your blessings.
Shout at the heavens, "All is well," then count the stitches.
Hear them praying in the streets, all their answers
