for My Muse of Light, Lover’s Delight!


Angel of sleep I adore thee

For making my eyelids heavy as lead

And rocking my tired flesh and bones

Gently, lovingly in your sacred

Ethereal arms and put me in

Deep relaxing sleep as you would

An innocent newborn baby.


Angel of sleep I adore thee

For blessing me with wings of light

So I can fly to far exotic lands

And to fabulous astral realms;

But most especially to the arms

Of my beloved muse who is oh,

An ocean away from my embrace.
