I seek you

To be at peace,

To not be in pieces.

To be at ease.

To erase the bygone,

To dream about the dawn.

To soothe the pain,

To heal what’s sick,

To mend what’s broken,

To nurse what’s bruised.

To brighten the dark,

To light up a spark.

To calm the raging mind,

To warm the aching heart.

To strengthen the weak,

To toughen the meek.

To drive away my grief,

To be flooded with relief.

I seek you,

Whitener of the past,

Carer of the present,

Foreteller of the future,

Curer of the troubles,

I seek you, O Sleep!!
