Falling Into Slumber


Falling into slumber,
In a peaceful sleep relieved...
That steps I've taken,
Did not shaken me.

I had those doubts descending.
But I faced them to set them free.
I had those doubts descending,
But faith was not chased from me.

Falling into slumber,
And...
I feel so pleased,
I did not fear what appeared...
On my path to leave.

I'm not one to be frightened,
Of a mission to complete.
I'm not one to leave a mission,
To feel defeat.
I seek to be tested.
With a quest to be my best.
And I can not rest,
If my best is thought to be less.

Falling into slumber.
And at peace to feel relieved.
I am falling into slumber.
And with myself I do feel pleased,
To do it with all doubts removed!

Falling into slumber,
I will sleep...
Peacefully.
With a falling into slumber,
I do it with relief and feeling pleased...
All doubts I had have been removed.

Falling into slumber,
I do it with relief and feeling pleased...
All doubts I had have been removed.
