Bedtime

 

Where past forgets, and future lies,
And slumber waits a distant prize,
Where snuffed out scents of candles rise,
I’ll meet you there, we’ll close our eyes.

And fingers find, our faces bound,
And words appear, but make no sound,
And pulses find a pace to keep,
I’ll meet you there, we’ll go to sleep.
