Sleep Personified

Sleep why do you evade me
Like young love you slip from my grasp
Like wind you dissolve in my hands
Sleep why do you escape me

Don’t be afraid of me sleep
Don’t hide away in shadow
Don’t shiver in the cold
Don’t whimper in the dark
Don’t run away from me sleep

Envelope me with your peace
Entrap me with your silence
Enclose me with your serenity

Carry me away to calmer waters
Create a space for me to dream
Calm my nerves and fears
Comfort me in nightmares

You seem to be a myth
I cannot tell if you are real
For when I am awake I sleep
When I sleep I am awake
