Sleep Well, My Love

Sleep Well, My Love

Sleep well, my love.  Sleep long into tomorrow.
May dreaming fill the changes in your night.
Don't lie awake.  Your work today was thorough,
creating time and home and life and light.
Fly far away.  My heart will be the arrow
to guide your visions to the farthest height.

Sleep well, my love.  My breast will be your pillow,
my arms and legs the bed where you may hide.
The fire's burned low, its last breaths soft and yellow.
The storm has passed; its clouds will soon divide.
Sleep well, my love.  My sleep is soon to follow
and when you wake, you'll find me at your side.
