Now I lay me...


Now I lay me...

now i lay me down to dream
finding your arms and touch
sleep is that far off time
when rest will be from toils and grime
in the pure activity of dream
I will hold you gentle
and love you without reserve
finding that brighter place
(with just us two)
leaving aside our daily dust and tasks
for the more valued closeness
shared without limit
till time passes away from us
(at last)
and all illusions of seperateness pass

"til time and illusion of separateness pass..." --much more than a transport of feeling--more like yogic knowing. Wonderful!

Ilove the message, anticipation for wholeness throughout everlasting life. Soul mates, completeness, and leaving behind the trivalities of life. Pretty good....

I like this one too. It speaks of how gentleness & love that is unconditional clears the pathway toward the union of the soul. You have a natural gift with words.

Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
