My sweet sleep, and my undying rest

That which I seek, as I feel the fire burn in my chest

Hands overworked, mind and back worked over

Thoughts of feet running wild, the lashing surely makes me sober


My sweet, sleep; you're now undying, so do rest

you put in all you had, and you couldn't do more than your best

maybe soon I'll be beside you, after the sun is done beating down

we'll be hand in hand again, one with each other, hearts truly bound


Or maybe I'll be alone for awhile, still waiting on that day

That time for you and I to be free, where at heart we do play

Hardly time to think on that, while I trip in this tall grass

Wondering if I'll reach the finish, if that border will be passed


My tears run free as I wish to be,

Streams of my face, oceans of my eyes, so deep

What more could I ask for, I do hasten this task for...

My undying rest, at peace in my sweet sleep

Hi! I'm not as active on this account as I want to be. For one I tend to forget that this site exists until I check my email. Two, I'm currently in the process of building up a fine art site for Oklahoma black and native historical references. The references correlate with another site that will be a storytelling site that has not yet been produced.
Happy to be back and gaining more knowledge!
