In The Fields…i Sleep


Lay me in sweet fields,
wild flowers as my crown,
let me see blue skies,
as I lie down....
Let me hear, the birds on the wing...
their music, a joy as they sing.....
There I shall dream, azure blue, is this a lie?
or is it true?
Silent I dream as angels do,
no thoughts, no tears except of you.....
Now as this cup is given up....
no more words to say, save one....
Good-bye,
for I died this day...
Weep not, for the tears,
they fall like gentil rain,
to cool the soil to ease the pain....
The worms, now are here for their feast,
let them come, let them eat,
and in now...I...Sleep....!!!
