Falling Asleep

tick tick tick another day
manifesting slips away
darkness looms with sleep's escape
I watch my breath and meditate...

you are with me in my mind
you're the one I've longed to find
all I need to know is you
have longed and longed to find me too

just a word to let me know...
breathing in and out now slow
letting go my thoughts in streams
getting closer to night's dreams...

can you feel me when I call
feel me rise and feel me fall
you're invited out of sight
to be alone with me tonight...

tick tick tick another day
all my thoughts now slip away
out of mind yet still I feel
you must know that I am real...

I close my eyes and watch my breath
in and out and in bereft
of conjuring a clever rhyme
while slipping slowly out of time
