Seasons of Life by Audrey Cofield



Curved Corner

Sleep

Countless stars twinkled in the Heavens,
      lighting up the dark of night.
The rhythmic breath of one in deep repose
resounded in the stillness.  Yieldingly I lost my fight-
with sweet oblivion, as I feel within the clutches of
      my woes.

The shambles of the past must be erased
      before the tomorrows,
A fresh start with each dawn of a new day,
eradicating yesterday's hurts and deep sorrows,
that have fallen ruthlessly in life's turbulent fray.

Sleep, God's merciful gift is a blessing
      and a healer in despair,
There can no joy begot n wakefulness,
only, in restful peace, devoid of care,
Can one re-weave the threads of worldly stress.
