Dance In The Night - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

Dance in the night
and enter into the world of dreams,
where mermaids invite sailors
and angels guide travellers.
Dance in the night and let
your dreamy nights be days
devoid of worries of wars.

Dance in the night
and close your eyes from the burdens
of daily life, from hard work and labor,
from nightmares and depression,
from fears and future schedules,
from ignorance, suppressed doubts
and nagging questions.

Dance in the night
And sleep well tonight, and let your eyes
rest from uninterrupted TV channels,
from internet links and virus programs,
from websites, profiles on Facebook
and Twitter, sms messages,
spams and telephone calls.

Dance in the night
Sleep well and close your eyes.

Topic(s) of this poem: angels , courage, hope

    an excellent piece felt peace of mind reading this, nicely done

    dance in the night
    let life take flight
    deprived of vengeful pride
    to a place where love and forgiveness derives
