Fill in the space
Between the dark and light
Between the dawn and night.
Of dreams so chaste
Flights of innocence
Purest in essence.
Please let me keep
The promise of slumber
No chains to encumber.
“Wait for you, I do each night;
Take me in your arms, in sweetest delight.
Each moment I struggle, each minute I fight
Alas! Every time, it’s a dark, endless flight.
Wait for you, I do each night
A gaze bleary, a sunken sight.
Lie by my side, ease my plight.
Seep in my soul, make it right.”
