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