        Sleep

It is to sleep, to rest,
As You have willed,
The setting sun sinks west
And all is stilled.

The stars, the planets sleep
Upon the sky
Where all that's dark and deep
Shines light nearby.

The crystal light at night
On seas it seems
Is sprinkling sleepy bright
Within my dreams.

Oh rest, now weary, rest,
My flesh and soul,
As heaven's welcomed guest,
With angels stroll.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
