The gift of sleep,
quiet, soothing peaceful sleep….
was never mine until now.
I could fall asleep easily
but would be awake
within three hours.
Now, I sleep when he sleeps.
I sleep deep, long dreams of peaceful places
Dreams of the magic that they keep.
Now, I sleep when he goes to work
again deep sleep full of graces.
What a miracle this new sleep doeth peruse…
Refreshed, pain free, my spiritual walk I can renew.
I never understood
when others talked of being in the flow.
My sleeping time is now
a peaceful long flowing river to which I go.
I am quieter.
I have more time
to think things through….this I know.
I am joyful with this new gift of spirit.
So soon, after a long walk in the sunlight
sleep will again be mine,
I can almost hear it.
There are wondrous worlds to keep.
