Finally it's bedtime.
I can rest and relax now.
Drifting into sleep.
Put today's worries behind.
Thinking about sleeping well.

Silence of the night.
Pitch darkness all around us,
so nothing is seen.
Deep in slumber and dreaming
of the heart's greatest desires.

The night becomes day,
and the darkness turns to light.
I slowly wake up.
the night of sleep is over, but
the next night will soon be here.

The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this because I was sitting outside in the peace and quiet, and it just hit me. Plus I really love to sleep.
