...Or watch

Number 3 in the series on the bedtime prayer.

Ye watchers and ye Holy Ones.

God is not the only one
Who watches us.
We watch each other,
Even at night,
Pay attention
To the particulars
Even as we sleep.

Even as we sleep
God holds our hand
Gives it a squeeze
So we know when
To open our eyes.
God’s like that.
She watches
The watchers.
She watches us watchers,
Names us holy,
Calls us worthy
Even when
We are asleep.
