Sleep


Sleep, stretched out fully on drying hay
Nap away in the heat of day
Sleep curled up warmly under the cover
Slumber in the night so bitter
Sleep away with a loud annoying snore
Doze; do not care what they will say
Sleep peacefully with a quiet rhythm
Nod off that delicious dinner

Sleep away all fears weighing on your mind
Sleep away the tormenting pains
Sleep away the aching muscles and bones
Sleep away debts and unpaid bills
Sleep away the sadness of a lost love
Sleep away, for no cause at all
Sleep away, whenever you have a chance
Sleep away, heal body and soul

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
