Till daylight brings it back again.
groping rays of morning sun,
Reality of day begun,
Reach out and
rudely touch my face
While night retreats to some dark place

Like fading notes from far off song.
time to cope with all thatís given,
Like storm clouds tossed that are
Battles to be fought and won..
Rest only comes with
When nighttime offers one more time
Deep peace with
sleep, from troubled mind.
