Oh, what sleep.
My eyes are drunk with all that night,
All that quiet darkness that tells me
Not to think, not to hear, not to see.
All I know is the blanket of warmth,
An aura of comfort around my body.
Softness, smoothness, tenderness touching
Me and filling me with feeling.
I plunge myself into the ocean
Of dreamless slumber, swimming deeper
And deeper, pushing through
Heavy currents of black and blue.
As I reach a new depth, take me, oh night.
Then only will I be ready to return to the light.
