Sweet Sleep

Nightmares in my head
Scare me out of bead
Junk feed, snacks & ice creams
Give me terrifying dreams

Deep sleep with soft down
Happy thoughts within my crown
It's deep sleep I want
No bats within my head that haunt

This is my delight
A restful and a peace filled night
Sweet dreams, wondrous dreams
Along banks of fish filled streams

Great fish, Crystal lake
Let me slumber and not wake
Great fish, Greater yet
Should I catch them in my net

Sleep, sleep, this is great
Now I wonder what I ate
I must remember to repeat
This dream again next time I sleep

    Thank you for your kind comment. And yes I must try to stay away from the junk food. But it is so hard. Had chocolate coconut cheesecake last night. It was so good.
