“Widow in White” by D. M. Larson

I lay in want of sleep 
and waited feverishly for the dawn
knowing I'd never sleep.

Then in a rocker
Appeared a widow in white
Knitting a shroud
Humming a silent song
Only she could hear.

Then she turned
And looked into my eyes.
I was drawn closer to her side.

The caring caress of her gentle eyes
Sought to touch the worries of my heart.

But a sudden shudder fell though me
And tossed me into folds of sleep.

Then as the light of dawn approached
I looked again and she was gone.
