SLEEP

When sleep comes
Let it be gentle as
spring rain ...
Brave as the daffodil
Reaching through the
dark earth ...
Triumplantly to live
again.

Sweet as the muskiness
of roses
Blooming in deep fragrance
Showering the earth with
crimson petals ...
Frail, yet everlastingly
secure.

Vibrant and warm as the autumn
leaf
Reflecting from the sun
The color, joy and life ...
Which nature shares so happily
With all mankind

When sleep comes
Let it be silent as the snow
Quiet, pure and clean ...
That we may lie beneath the
blanket of earth's peace
Softly and serene.

    Me too....I love sleep!
    At one time, a few years ago, I did not sleep well, and it was so distressing, but, now I sleep very well, and I am so very thankful for the lovely, sleep that I get.

    Hope you had a wonderful time at the Valentine's day dance!
