Some stay up late into the night

To let go, to keep fear at bay, to search thoughts, to find answers;

Sleep evades them

Because dreaming turns into unpleasantness, because of the fruits of restlessness;

Soon enough it will turn into a plea

To silence the mind, to find peace, to dream satisfyingly;

 

 Rest, rest, rest, come to me;

Take me away from my reality

And let all be right with the world;

Come

Find

Me...

And let me sleep in oblivion and serenity.
