WHILE I SLEEP IN CHAOS

Folder: 
SLEEPY TIME POEMS

 

While I sleep in chaos

I wish you to look

upon a wishing star.

 

Make a wish

and whisper it softly

in my ear.

 

As I lay sleeping

whisper in my ear

anything I wouldn’t hear

while I was awake.

 

While I say asleep;

tell me childhood dreams 

and secret yearnings 

you would like to share

but feel too embarrassed to speak.

 

It is surely all right for you.

I shant hear too much

for I am sleeping. . .

 

and when I awaken

we’ll see how many wishes

I can make come true.

 

For M.P.
