“and he became their savior
   in all their distress.
It was no anguish* or angel
   but his presence that saved
         them;” Isaiah 63:9

no hand-wringing
in the solemn hours
of the night, nor
any paladin on
a white horse
riding to our rescue,
but your gentle spirit,
your whispered lullaby
your comfortable lap,
you simply being you
which brings us home
