Sleep Madrigal

Sleep's the Great Healer— Sleep's the Revealer Of hidden meanings, Unbidden gleanings. When sorrow aches us, Sleep overtakes us— Stealing away grief, Like a welcome thief. Night is the coverlet For a longing lover— yet It's Sleep who delves Deep into our selves, Finding dusty dreams... on shadowy shelves. When life's a jailor, Sleep's the unveiler Of an inner key... To set us free. Sleep's our best friend At a hard day's end— Weaver of fantasy... with reality, Make-believer of what could be... Sleep's the Great Healer... of you and me. – Harley White < 1987 >
