Sleep now

Written by: João Camilo

Sleep now,
when the house stills dark,
lay your head on your pillow,
close your eyes to all sorrow:
meet with joy playing in a park.
A dream shall kiss your face 
and tie your hair with a white lace.
 
Sleep now, 
When the morning star is hidden
timid like a vestal maiden, 
cross your arms over your chest,
journey to the secluded west .
A dream will take you to a land 
where beauty is the last command. 
 
Sleep now, 
With a beam, with no fears,
with fancy, with no tears.
All you need is to find and take
the dream’s heart and awake.
Leave behind every regret
for a bliss you already forget.. 
 
Sleep, sleep now…
