I'm in Bed Now
I'm in bed now waiting to go to sleep,
but my thoughts they are rushing by very fast
making me more agitated it all in my mind.
I stand by a river bank and I just watch,
for what you ask,
why my thoughts
They pass me by,
but I do not engage them no, no
that would just mess me up.
I observe them, and
let them go and I watch my mind settle down
like a puddle of muddy water
Down down down.
Calming me slowly by and by.
Just before I doze off the water has become clear
No more thoughts.
No more cares,
just lulling myself to a peaceful sleep.
