Sleep


Awakened from my sleep
Eyes stinging from the streams
I contemplate my life
I think about my needs
Seen for what it is
Life is such a gift
I think about the truth
My soul begins to lift

Broken is beautiful
And tears can be relief
What's unspoken is screaming
Peace overwhelms my grief
I'm bound in loyalty
And wrapped up in love
Captured in melodies
I soar like a dove

I'm emptied from the shattered
Redeemed from the scattered
A mosaic unique by design
Sealed by space and time
Solemn as the promise
That spoke me into life
Relieved by the truth
I finally sleep.
