Lay down; lay down my sleepy head,
As I lay down in this rag-tag field of reclusive dreams,
How long before this day is just a distant playful memory?
Lay down; lay down my grateful true and tested love,
As I unfold in this endless rolling breath of vibrant life,
How many lifetimes before Earth is just a ripple under shimmering stars?
