Lyrics Three for Nighttime ~

1 ~
Tonight 
a gentle-mannered breeze 
brushes the dark-still little world 
that waits around me 
singing so softly 
of pleasant, restful dreams 
and almost promising 
teasingly 
a laughing, lovely day 
tomorrow _

2 ~

How softly has the night 
enfolded tree and shrub and home
with snug, protective darkness 
with quiet, soothing darkness 
and put to rest 
all tensions of the daylight 
thus quietly to pour 
the balm of nature's healing 
release and peace, thus stealing 
from a weary self
now lost in dreams _ 

3 ~

Good night, sweet dreams , the day's at end 
let pillowed rest all troubles mend 
all weariness now flown away 
be made anew through dreams at play 
sleep softly, gently through the night 
sleep restfully 'til morning's light 
sleep curled and cuddled, safe and sound 
Good night all _ may sweet dreams abound _

  17. Very beautiful, Margie. Sleep is elusive for me for some reason. I can sleep 2 hours or 3, wake up fully awake, stay up 2 or 3 hours and then go back to sleep.

  26. Margie,

    I love all three considerations of our final thoughts at nightime...The pillow moments appeal very much to me..The escape into a place of rest and dreams..
    A recommended read before sleeping!!
    Best wishes, AND a belated ''Happy Birthday, Margie,'' xxxxx
