As I Lay Sleeping / Sharon-Elizabeth Walker



Poems by Sharon-Elizabeth Walker



As I Lay Sleeping


As I lay sleeping you are awake,
doing your daily deeds
Sleeping meadows, whispered winds
When all you hear are squeaks.

As I lay sleeping, eyes now shut,
your eyes are wide awake
For gentle sounds now hushed, and still
caress my peaceful ears
With you, the sun stays bright.

As I lay sleeping weary bodies relax,
yet, busy your day ‘til late
When once you’re home, you slink on down
upon your couch and say…

‘Now it’s me to lay asleep and HA,
for pity’s sake
Now it’s time for you to work
And rest indeed I’ll take.’
