Sleep, you mysterious vixen

You promise me rest and then

Sleep, you evasive vixen of the night

You tempt me with the promise of rest

and yet when I lay down beside you

you only leave me to my constant thoughts

Sleep, you wonderful mistress of the dark

Persuading me to follow you into the unknown

but you draw back and leave me alone

And when you do come

you leave me with dreams

of wonder and mystery

that keep me in turmoil

until the birds wake me

announcing the fading of the blackness

to the breaking of the dawn

Sleep, you are a forbidden foe

but yet I must deal with you

every day and every night.
