No One Ever Sleeps

No one ever sleeps,
At all times some part or the other
Does stay awake
To excite, inspire and monitor;
The heart beats
Breathing and absorption does not cease
And memories convert to hopeful dreams.
The mind does not sleep,
It does not cease to function;
As the observer and the observed
It arouses, awakens and also attends.
At two separate levels
It decides the course of thought -
What to examine or act upon;
It sets goals and regulates emotions,
And reveals the implicit.
There is no escape from the mind
Which left alone loses itself.
