Sleep


Drowsiness I feel as I lay in this bed,
My eyes closing shut
As I slowly lull to sleep,
Not knowing where life will take me,
But I am an insomniac,
And I cannot go to sleep,
For something is on my mind.
Then I force myself into a meditative chant,
Trying to close my eyes.

Clear your mind, O Dreamer,
Clear your head and embrace the world,
Lull, my friend, lull.

Clear your mind,
Open your senses,
Relax your back so that
You can feel the Sandman upon you.
Lull, my friend, lull.

Breathe deeper, and
Not so rapidly,
Breathe slowly,
Exhale comfortably,
Lull, my friend, lull.

Don’t be so tense,
Let your muscles relax,
Let them soothe your pain and sorrows,
And let those feelings of distress fade away,
Lull, my friend, lull.

Now, let the great abyss open up to you,
And let everyone hear your meditation,
As you go into the dreamworld which
Is real existence,
For now you are in relaxation.
Lull, my friend, lull.

And then I was asleep,
No distress on my mind,
And I was ready to take on the abyss.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
