THE EDGE OF THE BED

 

There a mystery to behold at the edge of a bed

At the edge of the bed where prayers are said

On a pillow you can dream dreams

Itís at the edge of a bed that you can get things straight in your head

You can plan plans and ponder lifeís greater schemes

The foot of the bed is where the dog sleeps

But at the edge of the bed, thatís where you meet your soul and the company he keeps

First the one shoe drops an then another

And the edge of your very own bed is like that of no other

This is where you remember private conversations

With your sister and brother

And think deep thoughts of your father and mother

Some people sit on the edge of the bed, others kneel

But it doesnít matter what position your in, itís all about how you feel

The middle of the bed is for children and bouncing and giggles

For cuddling and tickles and wiggles

A place to put a smile on your face

But edge of the bed is actually some where out there in time and space

The edge of the bed is a most holy place

The edge of the bed, where prayers are said

Is the Last place we go when we retire at night

And the edge of the bed is the first place that we pass in the dawns early light

The edge of the bed is a place that is easy to pass without taking notice

But I think GOD made the edge of the bed just so he could talk with us
