                hand side border


My days cold and bleak
My heart and soul
Empty
I am alone in everything I do
There is no bright light with which to share my life
No guiding star to which I can look

I am running from the truth
Which my heart refuses to accept
For it is easier to believe in nothing
Than to live in hope

Yet
I am not totally devoid of hope
For as I lay my weary head down
Sleep overtakes me
Some dreams are dark
Restless
Much like my life
Yet some are beautiful

As I lay me down to sleep
I am faced
With a vision of beauty
You are all I ever dreamed of
All I ever hoped for

As I lay me down to sleep
I know hope
As you take my hand
And lead me through the dance

As I lay me down to sleep
I am dancing with you
In my dreams

The dawning day
Breaks through your sweet embrace
And I pray
That as I lay me down to sleep
You will always be there
And one day
The sun will not cause you to flee
