Time To Rest My Soul


(unrelated reply)

I can not wait to go to sleep
In my silent slumber I lay safe
And in my dreams I do not weep
I can not wait to go to sleep

I can not wait to go to bed
On the soft pillow I shall rest my head
All troubles will melt away
To disappear for another day
I can not wait to go to bed

Ten more minutes till I rest my soul
Under the stars that gleam like gold
Under the sky
Deep black like coal
Ten more minutes till I rest my soul

In my dreams I see you there
Together we stand
So happy we are
Not a worry, not a care
If only real life could be so fair

In my dreams I lay with you
Under clouds so white
And a sky so blue
In a field of green
Your kind to me tonight
Instead of being cruel and mean

You have no idea
How much I wish this was life
You have no idea
That watching you
Is like being cut with a knife
Right to the heart
Where I sit and bleed
But it doesn’t matter
It’s what I need

Almost time to go to sleep
Almost time to disappear
Almost time to go to sleep
Time to run away from fear

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
