Sleep Calls Softly

Sleep calls soflty,
Tugging at my weary mind.
My soul breathes out,
releasing its burdens into the arms of endless time.

I relax, and my fortress falls,
letting my mind sort through smokelike thoughts,
drifting through a sea of conciousness.

Sleep calls softly,
An entrancing melody,
Distant, but drawing near.
I can feel her presence.

Gently, she draws the strength from me,
Encircling my body like a gentle and welcome breeze.
Soon I cannot hold her weight and I sink slowly into the depth of her comfort...

    Sylvia, My "soul breathes out" to me describes that feeling (of relief? relaxing?) Just before you fall asleep. "releasing its burdens into the arms of endless time" that comes right after it helps to explain it, its just a release, like an exhalation. make sense?
