In truth I want to sleep but you
embrace the moment with a
greater zeal; the whispers urge
belief in what is in your arms
and real to touch – why sleep?
You are awake, it is enough!

Within a tender moment there
a tiny gem of wisdom bares its
rectitude; you sleep to wake it
says, you’ve slept for years and
now the pace is changed – as
you are freed awakening you
lose the need to sleep again
