Bed Rest


Come night!
rest upon my shoulders,
And guide me through the Sandman’s quarters.
Come night!!
Bring the stars and moon
To shine their light into my shadowed filled room.
Come night!!!
Help me rest my mind
Soundless prayers on clasped hands,
soft whispers from behind.
Come night!!!!
So I can rest, though I’ve had many sleepless nights I confess.
Come night!!!!!
Burning eyelids, I close my eyes and listen to the sounds of night.
Ignoring the eerie spite
Day comes….
No sleep for me,
Another resting night
Another lost dream.
