AN: I'm still in the Songfic mood, so here's some more. Each chapter focuses on a different person (or persons), and will vary in length.
Song is 'Better Than a Hallelujah' by Amy Grant, and I have to say that it's my current favorite.

Disclaimer: Anything you recognize isn't mine. The idea is, but the song and fandom aren't.

Character: Teyla Emmagan


God loves a lullaby
In a mother's tears in the dead of night

She sat on her bed, alone, watching her son sleep. She wanted to pray, to thank her Savior for everything she had to give her son. But she couldn't. She could only think of what she couldn't give him, and that was a lot. She couldn't give him a father, a solid home, or the reassurances that she wouldn't leave him.

She was on the frontline team, she left almost everyday with the possibility that she wouldn't be coming home.

Silent tears rolled down her cheeks, her thoughts uncontrollable. She'd asked her God many times why He'd let her lover and the father of her son be taken by her worst enemy … But she never received an answer.

Falling sideways to lay on her soft mattress, the tears began coming with a rush- soaking her pillow as she sobbed. She cried out with all her heart, asking why. Demanding, asking, begging for an answer … and yet still there was none.

Her cries died off and she continued to lay there, motionless. Then, so soft she almost missed it, a Voice filled the room and herself.

"Do not worry." The Voice said. "I will be with you. I will be his Father. I will give you both a solid home. I will comfort him when you're away."

She knew, without a doubt, that the Voice belonged to her heavenly Father. Just hearing His Voice comforted her, and she fell asleep, her thoughts suddenly lightened.

Better than a Hallelujah sometimes
