    As my eyelids close
    And the last yawn of the day is taken
    I await sweet sleep
    I await my dreams

    A tape of the day's events
    Now runs through my mind
    A silent film, if you will
    I watch myself
    All that I did
    I've had better days
    I've had worse

    The sounds of night serenade me
    I can hear a worm scream
    As he struggles to be released
    From the beak of an Owl
    I hear the rhythm of trickling water
    Running down a stream miles away
    I am one with the night

    Just as the sandman arrives
    My final thought is of you
    I will sleep with a smile
    Knowing
    Tonight's dream
    Will be of you

    BE

    BE,

    This flow is nice and sweet most def!!!

    The sounds of night serenade me
    I can hear a worm scream
    As he struggles to be released
    From the beak of an Owl
    I hear the rhythm of trickling water
    Running down a stream miles away
    I am one with the night

    Terrific imagery...

    Peace
