Sleep

James Montgomery

Fall into sleep
Allow the hours to weigh your eyelids
Dream of dreams untold
of warm and happy days
when you were young
and your life laid out
like an empty road before you
take the path
the untrodden path before you
Where does it lead?
Somewhere that we can never understand....
