SLEEP! JUST A DREAM

The night is chill, deep and dark,
All rapt and serene though not me.
A little pigeon cuddling in the bark,
Beside its mother proves its glee.

~

waking and tinkling at the night's alarm,
In through the pane, peeps the moon's ray.
Star light and stillness give a hypnotic charm,
In mental fog, here do I lay.

~

Ominous shadows, fiery ghosts show big face,
The major life's trauma, fatal torment so deep.
In fretful frenzy yet do I pace,
Depressed with solitude with none to weep.

~

O sleep! a welcome guest for the weary bands,
The poor man's wealth, a solace to man's heart,
You entangle the old , the infants of all lands,
Why so partial and forsake me apart?

~

O sleep! a little roof of dreams,
Girdle me whose heart is torn.
Move not thy heavenly grace as streams,
Come, linger in me where grief is born.

~

O sleep! a good tribute shall I pay,
Than all the cherubs can lend.
For all I ask is your gentle long stay,
And mettle to meet the silent end..
