Sleep Tight... - Poem by PHUMLA KHANYILE

On the softest of petals
In the center of his palms
Take rest oh beloved
Sleep peacefully without sound

His angels will carry you
Rocking your tired soul to and fro
Until the shadow of things remain
And your soul find its peaceful rest

Let your eyes flap and close
As you take your shallow breathe
Sleep dear one, sleep
Forget for a while all your toils

He shall rise you up at crack of dawn
With new hope and revived will
But for now lie in peace my love
Let no bad dreams come your way

If fear descends at midnight
Dare not coil in misery
Search by hand in the dark
I'll be just near to hold you still

Let me kiss you goodnight beloved
Seal this day just like many
It is I you should take to your dreams
Sleep dear one hope we meet there soon
