slumber comes slow

wrapping like a soft blanket

images flicker into view

worries of tomorrow

replaying yesterday

fears and wishes meshed

emotions spur to life

night still lingers

but sleep does not

yearning to keep a warm feeling

or calm an electric tremble

hoping for dreams of comfort

or no dreams at all

longing to stay cocooned

as light touches the world

feet stand in the sparkling beams

leaving all dreams where they lay

until the mind and heart

once again

return to their infinite journey

and love affair
