My Lady Called Sleep - Poem by allan wood
I long for a sweet and gentle sleep,
a sleep in which I do not weep.
So tired of relentless tears,
or facing endless fears.
Years have marred this face with cold disgrace,
only fantasy to embrace.
Just an hour of slumber;
or more without number.
Worst of dream is better than Day's best.
Rest, rest, all sorrow is suppressed.
My love is sweet gentle sleep,
where none do hear me weep.
Thanks for reading
