Sleep My Darling

I dream of you

lay my head to rest

and pray

imagine the wind

is a gentle caress

a blessing from beyond


I curse the day

you walked away

my tortured soul

manufactures lies.

easy to imagine

your shadow plays upon the wall


do you cling to her

like you clung to me?

are you lying there

heart stopped by foul play?

is your wandering mind,

lost in a time warp?


Come back to me

and sleep my darling

by my side once more

no questions will I pose

as you repose in peaceful bliss

history expunged, nothing amiss
