Sleep

 

Escape, o soul!
Fly away, fly on high
Search the sky for a voice
Who calls you from your resting place
Here in the heaviness of your cage.

Let go, my soul!
Journey far, travel light.
Soar on heaven's misty dawn
Hues of crimson, lavender and gold.
Settle into her gentle caress.

Forgive, my soul.
Release despair, untangle fear.
Let go the guilt that jails the mind,
Hardens the heart that beats with rage.
Release the hopelessness within.

Breathe, my soul!
Pure bouquet, fragrance light.
Fill your lungs with living color
Dance on floors of glistening gems
Explode in radiance and love!
