What sleep may bring

 

What am I feeling?, Is it sleep that prevails?

That which takes my ever-present state?

Whom does it serve? Life or death's wake?

So many questions arise for my weary eyes!

Sore left arm or right, my age is close to flight

Land on a bed of willow leaves that fall from branches weeping

Everyone needs sleep, amongst dark shadows that creep

Before long and after my plan is to lay

To greet sleep with vivid thoughts of following days
