Sleep Oh Blessed Sleep - Poem by Susan Alldred Lugton

Sleep oh blessed sleep,
the place where I can dream,
of all that I do need
my energy to keep.

Sleep oh blessed sleep,
The place of future hope,
in places far away,
and love for me to keep

Sleep oh blessed sleep
Lull me with your content,
Keep me ever safe my
souls sanity to keep.

Sleep oh blessed sleep,
Let me emerge at morn,
With clearer thought and mind,
with no more need to weep

    I know how precious sleep is for me so I can really relate to your pen. How I do look forward to a therapeutic rest after shift work and how euphoric the thought of sleeping after an emotionally draining night shift. (Report)Reply

    I pray for your safety in the middle of recent strong quake at NZ....... Don't ever forget to sleep to rest your worried mind midst disaster....

    An adorable poem about sleep which is one of the best things that the life has to offer to a man to bring him solace and peace of mind. Beautifully explained. Thank you, Susan.

    Sleep that deeps in slumber is one of the benefits of peace of mind. A good night sleep is a continued Xmas. A lovely peace of poetry, well articulated and insightfully penned. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report)Reply

    I really love the sleep, way more than being awake actually! (Report)Reply
