In the dark

In the dark I removed her from her stroller and into her crib.

In the dark I took off her dress and bloomers.

In the dark I changed her diaper.

In the dark I undid her braids and took off her hair clip.

In the dark I put on her pajamas.

In the dark I kissed her good night and told her I loved her.

In the dark she stayed sleeping all through the night.
