Make your own poem based on a line from a famous poem

From Ash Wednesday, by T S Eliot
"Lady of Silences"

Lady of silences,
Bless the space between word and word
When words fail us.

Lady of the sleepless hours
Between 3:00 am and dawn
Have mercy on wakeful children
Who fear to close their reddened eyes to nightmare.

Lady of the hidden wounds
Bless those who bleed silently.
Heal their pain.

Lady of deepest midnight,
Make safe the darkness.
Walk in our dreams.
