Goodnight My Demons
Goodnight my friendly demons
You have never left my side.
You have taken with me through life
As you carry me behind.
Goodnight my caring demons
You are with me when I sorrow.
You sit next to me while I weep
As I long for a better tomorrow.
Goodnight my patient demons
You stayed up with me all night.
You showed me ways I could fall asleep
As I'm reaching for the light.
Goodnight my trusted demons
You convinced me to close my eyes.
You watch me sleep with such glee
As my last conscious breath subsides.
Goodnight my joyful demons
I did what I thought best.
I now have closed my eyes
So we all can be at rest.
