Now We Lay Us Down to Sleep...Oblivious

Like the prayers we say before we slip into sleep at the end of the day come the dreams we dream to carry us away.

Now We Lay Us Down to Sleep...Oblivious



Now We Lay Us Down to Sleep...Oblivious

Why is it always
The dull blade,
With such wide-eyed surprise,
That cuts the deepest
In the dead od night
.
The quite dog
At the end of his leash
That longs to bite.

Why Is It


Why is it
The road closest to home
Is where caution
Is left aside
And the humble prayer
On bending knees
We once left unsaid

That comes to haunts us so
Through darkest night.

Soon Evening Will Come


Soon evening will come
As a comforter
For daylight’s harshness.
Soon star light
And moon beam
Will become our blanket,
Horizon our sleepy bed.

The Day Time World


Now the day time world
That once worried us so
At long last slips away
Into God’s little twinkles
,
Leaving us no thought nor pain
From all the other fallen souls

As We Fold


As we fold
Into our own sleepy dreams;
Leaving this broken world
Of deliberation, and celebration
For the wanting eyes
And empty hearts of others

In This Slumbered Place


As in this slumbered place
There is no threat
For the disenchantment
Of our dreams
No worry
Over another working day
Washed up
And put away.

I have been writing since the beginning of time it seems, not because I want to write, but because I have too. My favorite form of writing is poetry, all kinds and types of poetry.

This is the perfect way to start a brand new day Utah. Saying goodbye to last night and its dreams.
