Sweet Sleep

Sweet Sleep,
Place me in a lighted wood
where the paths are clearly marked
and mistakes are buried under
overturned rocks.

Sweet Sleep,
Lay me on a life raft in the middle of the blue ocean;
let me drift in destiny's wind.
And, in time, wake me up quenched and satiated,
and certain about the tide coming in.

Sweet Sleep,
Float me through a meteor shower, like you did once before.
Cleanse me of all my self doubt.
And fly me higher to all the layers of heaven, and
their wooly blankets of protection.

Sweet Sleep,
Push me under and hold me down
and let me see the euphoria in a last breath,
so that when I wake, I find
My light.
