Winters Are To Come

on silent moments while you are breathing
daydream of high castles on cloudy skies
sweet moments of misty daylight sleep
crisp golden plains in the summer sight

sleep light and soft don’t dream too deep
or else you will miss your inner delight
enjoy now all the summer has to offer
for all is not eternal, winters are to come

on silent moments while you are smiling
think of old jokes they used to crack
sweet moments of cherished memories
while you dreamed in the golden barn light

smile light and soft don’t laugh too deep
or else you will miss your inner delight
relish all the mischief while you can
for all is not eternal, winters are to come

on silent moments while you are walking
feel the wet moss draping your bare feet
absorb all sights where the beaten path leads
beside the lake waters shining in summer light

walk slow and soft don’t run as you can
or else you will miss all the sights
enjoy sights on the mirror of the lake plane
for all is not eternal, winters are to come

take it all slow and light while you can
enjoy your life now as all is allowed
for nothing is eternal when time comes
winters of icy cold and dark will strike


Sleep Baby Sleep (for a sleeping beauty)

nighttime birds are singing tonight
deep within dream deep dream light
calling you to join them fly aloft
sleep baby sleep sound sleep soft

your water is cold because you forgot to heat
your lunch is cold because it’s unmade
got a hell lot to study but your resolve is wane
you are hungry you don’t know how to be sane

the sun was high all along and you are still undone
got parties to attend and still you are in bed
switch that bugging cell phone off
they shall not bother you anymore

they have been ringing you around the clock
those buggers need to get a life and sleep
why the hell can’t you lay little bit more
the bed is warm and outside it looks cold

you are lazy as your fluffy pillow
you are warm in your wooly blanket
was down since twelve hours or is it more
day ahead is hard and got no idea what to do

if you get up you have to cook but you are weak
also will have to study more and it’s long overdue
so better sleep more and sleep tight
dream more wonder why can’t you sleep forever

nighttime birds are singing tonight
deep within dream deep dream light
calling you to join them fly aloft
sleep baby sleep sound sleep soft
