The Beautiful Sleep

Beautiful sleep, blessed sleep
covers tight around my chin
wrapped in warmth
enveloped in quiet
inhale, now exhale
exhaustion gives way
afloat on the sea of unconsciousness
like a babe
no worries or fear
escape into nothingness
sweet dreams
full of people; babies, and family and friends.

Toss and turn and twist
fluff the pillow
throw off the covers
no comfort in this bed
the clock shrieks the time
waiting, waiting
longing for the sleep that never comes
and then to wake with irritation
and envy
for those who sleep
the beautiful sleep.

Proverbs 3:24 
When you lie down, you will not be afraid; When you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.

Psalm 4: 8
In peace I will both lie down and sleep, for thou alone, O Lord, dost make me to dwell in safety.
