Stars Go To Sleep
Stars! Why be awake with me
Hit the bed and go to sleep
You are not enslaved by agony but free
My bleeding soul’s wounds are deep
Through my open window you peep
With your twinkling searching eyes
Your glow in my gloomy nights creep
With the grace of the fireflies
Someone gifted me sleeplessness
And rewarded me with anguish
My nights darkness and gloom dress
Like out of water fish I languish
Why be overly worried for me
A day may return my deserted sleep
Setting from the bondage my soul free
When that happens you must not weep.
Stars! I beseech go to sleep!
