Sing me to sleep

Sing me to sleep

Drive me slowly, softly

Toward undulating star paths

Written in verse

I’ll slide along them

Melting into my deepest dreams

Only to rise, slowly, back towards the light of our room

Where you lull me, ray-stricken

Into endless catacombs

Of warm visions,

Made by poets and artists,

To send me peaceful

Into an evening of dark and solemn reflection,

On the universe

Inside my eyelids
