sleep, pretty darling, do not cry
and i will sing a lullaby

A Request

Notwithstanding my excellent understanding of myself,
I find that sometimes my turbulent emotions more
complicated than I would like.
Kinks in a garden hose can be similarly convoluted.

Maybe you could offer me some escape?
A way to cheat time and
transport myself to untroubled waters, where angels
hiding in the clouds would sing me to peaceful sleep.
Even if the sun did not rise, I would be happy there.
Rally my spirits, breeze. I fear I am tempting the
night. Guide me home to safety, gentle stream.
Even if the sun does not rise, I fade with love in my heart.
