One Teeming Mass of Babies

One Teeming Mass of Babies
© Rabbi Menachem Creditor

Just one teeming mass of babies,
crying because that's what we know.
not reduced
just honest
as the protective veil,
the security blanket
that filters reality,
is ripped away
yet again.
Hold us.
Tell us it will be ok.
Tell us we'll be fine.
Remind us to breathe.
And.... please leave the light on.
It can be scary sometimes.
