Shine as a source of endless light
whose rainbows of colour deter the night
where daydreams are gentle as doves in flight
and sleep the sleep of angels

Shine like a shower of soft moonbeams
Inhabit the sea of a thousand dreams
where laughter and love are timeless themes
and sleep the sleep of angels

Shine like the sun in a golden sky
On warm, sultry evenings, a fragrance, a sigh
an echo of summer as life passes by
and sleep the sleep of angels

    Greta, Just wanted you to know.. the first time I read this poem was back in 2005. It has since been and will remain on my favorites list. My husband passed away in January of 2010 and I have not been able to write since, but for his wake I insisted this poem be placed next to his photo collage and casket. Just wanted you to know the degree of how much your excellent poem has and continues to move me. Take care and best wishes, Michele

    Thankyou very much Theresa, that's what I believe - we are a source of light. Happy writing! Greta

    Thankyou so much, I wrote this poem in 2005 and it's still going strong - it was a regional winner in the National Poetry contest here in the UK last year and was featured in the local press. It's good to know it is still being read, best wishes Greta
