I hope you’re sleeping sweetly
in that land so far away
and that morning brings bright promise
on your just unfolding day.
I hope you only meet pleasant faces
as you go about your life,
people who uplift and
are free of gall and strife.
I pray you take it all
no matter what it gives this life
and use it to make a better you
as your day gives birth to night.
(There, that’s how we used to do it, just lay it down and leave it there.)
