Nightfall.

The evening sleeps quietly under the moon.

300 million rest,

New babies bloom.

Closing eyes,

Sleepy head.

I crawl into my big warm bed.

Upon this night,

I lay my soul to rest.

Yet a million thoughts race through my head.

Safe in bed,

I hear night noises.

Begging me to come explore.

But I am in between,

Dreamland and make believe.

Where the skies are blue and the grass is green.

Shadows dancing,

On the walls.

A fishing boat light,

Shines through the halls.

As the evening sleeps quietly under the moon,

I fall asleep in my cocoon.

Clarity.

Have you ever looked out over the ocean into the dark sky on a summer night?
The stars look so real.
It's almost as if they know exactly how I feel.

I reach out to touch,
But stumble on the edge.
I slowly start to drift,
But catch myself on the cliff's ledge.

How'd I get here?
I'm no longer a stray.
Finally this once in life,
It seems I've found my way.

The past seems distant,
All that's left anew.
Life begins once again,
I'm finding clues.

No more sinking,
Weeping,
Sadness here.
All that's left is me,
My mind so clear.

Rest Softly.

The waves crash down on the shore below,
Night falls,
Moon rises,
Dark waters flow.

Birds have quieted,
Sleeping in their nests,
As fish swim deep,
They softly rest.

Cats purr,
Owls awaken,
Dogs have done their best.
But for today,
They have stood the test.

God's creation calls all,
Who reap and sow,
A bit of rest to ease the soul.

Dreams still hang high,
Babies don't cry,
When morning comes,
Again we try.

Til then,
Don't weep,
You've done your best.
Lay your head down,
And meekly rest.
