Treasure Island

Anisha Youngblood

Goodnight, My Love

Goodnight my love,
Goodnight goodnight
Your soul is weary,
You fought a good fight

Sleep now my love,
Please, please rest
God is calling
You've passed the test

Don't burden your mind,
With thoughts of me
You must go now,
Your soul is free

Peace is awaiting
For you to darken its door,
You are absent from your body,
But you are present with the Lord

I beg you not to grieve,
though I just might,
Goodnight my love, goodnight

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
