Sweet Sleep

Sleep is something a lot of us take for granted… At the end of the day, we lay down in a warm cosy bed, close our eyes and fall asleep. It’s as easy as that, we don’t even think about it. There are so many whose sleep patterns and where they lay down to rest is controlled by the weather and other unfortunate circumstances. And then there are others that depend on pills to sleep because of different medical conditions. Deep, restful sleep is as important as being awake and alive, it’s what helps us to be really alive! So if you’re able to lay down to rest on a warm cosy bed and are able to fall asleep as soon as your head touches the pillow consider yourself doubly blessed!

Sleep – Charles Anthony Silvestri

The evening hangs beneath the moon
A silver thread on darkened dune
With closing eyes and resting head
I know that sleep is coming soon

Upon my pillow, safe in bed
A thousand pictures fill my head
I cannot sleep, my mind’s a-flight
And yet my limbs seem made of lead

If there are noises in the night
A frightening shadow, flickering light
Then I surrender unto sleep
Where clouds of dream give second sight

What dreams may come, both dark and deep
Of flying wings and soaring leap
As I surrender unto sleep,
As I surrender unto sleep.
