Forty Winks Teddy - Poem by Charldre Banks

In the still of the darkness
where you lay your mind to rest
as your eyes shut in silence
and your thoughts becomes less

you whisk away the mayhem of this very busy day
and tuck in your achievements for yet another matinee
your breathing now heavy, your body weighing down
as you're called to the land of slumber through the village of fairy town

it's in that moment that my love reaches to embrace
your resting thoughts, your slumbering mind, your peaceful body and sculpted face
secure in one another as time is now our friend
there is no need for rush or haste for our souls now journey through time and space

with worries now rested and no rushes being feared
knowing our deeply in love souls will always remain so very near
thus hoist up the anchor, set the sails 'aloose'
as you slumber our love transcends time and distance as Gulliver's pioneers.
