"Sound Asleep" - Manila, 29 September 2016
“Sound Asleep” – Manila, 29 September 2016

i sleep
in peace
in comfort
serene
satisfied
safe.

let the
rain
drum down
its staccato
tattoo,
let the
wind howl
wildly
its frantic
song:
i will
sleep on.

let the
moon
stream down
its silvery
beams
let the
stars
sparkle and
dance their
measure:
i will
sleep on.

and i
will linger
in the
peace
of my
dreams
till dawn
breaks
the sun
wakes
and i
once more
awaken
to life.
