LET THE NIGHT SLEEP


Let the night sleep
Sleep for ever deep
With the night I sleep
Beyond the world to peep
Universe will sleep
Plants and trees
Birds and bees
Stars and moon
To sleep very soon!
Fruits and flowers
Joy with showers
Will sleep with me and the night
Not to keep the life very tight!
No dawn of the day
Right upto the dooms day!
Sleep permanent
In the world impermanent
I'll sleep without light
My agonies will sleep
My worries will sleep
My pains will sleep
My sins will sleep!

While in sleep
I am pure
I am peace
I am noble!

While my body is asleep
Awake my soul I keep
Sleep akin to death
Death akin to sleep in mirth?

Let the night sleep
Sleep for ever deep
With night I sleep
Sleep to eternity
Soul to merge in Divinity!

    Wonderfully composed. It's so profound and replete with imagery. The best part I like is:

    Sleep permanent
    In the world impermanent
    I'll sleep without light
    My agonies will sleep
    My worries will sleep
    My pains will sleep
    My sins will sleep! (Report) Reply

    While in sleep
    I am pure
    I am peace
    I am noble! ....................

    night still sleeps
    breath persists by the blood
    takes the tears from the sorrow
    yet it shadows by its veil of ruse
    moment yet to descend from slumber
    carring noble, pure and peaceful thoght in one `s life..................wonderful imagery of life by the nature as ephemeral in its own time and space, great write, i do amire,10+ +, thanks for sharing (Report) Reply
