Sleep

 

Put your arms around me,

Let me sleep away my fears;

And though they are now pouring

Just ignore all of my tears.

 

The memories are haunting,

Bringing back so much that’s wrong,

The pain and the hurting have

Been building all along.

 

I’ll bury them inside me

And I’ll submerge regret,

Too many of these ghosts are things

I really should forget.

 

There is nothing more that I can do

Than erase them from my mind,

Cover them so thoroughly

They’ll be too hard to find.

 

So just put your arms around me

And let my sorrow flow

And eventually I think we’ll find

Through sleep my tears will go.
