Sleeping

What can I say, just in the mood to write. I do that when I feel a bit sad at times.

SLEEPING

Sleeping in the darkness of night
Sleeping in the morning light

I lay here peacefully alone
I lay here feeling a love that was shown

Sleeping in your own special place
Sleeping in an unfamiliar space

I lay here waiting to dream again
I lay here wanting to be awake, oh when

Sleeping like an innocent child
Sleeping like a mind gone wild

I lay here to nourish my soul
I lay here, so I can be sure of my goals

Sleeping til I become alive
Sleeping so I can thrive

I lay here to feel your jubilation
I lay here to escape my own frustration

Sleeping as the days go by
Sleeping til I no longer cry

I lay here wanting to touch your hand
I lay here knowing, you might understand

Sleeping away to escape a life
Sleeping can sometimes cut you like a knife
