Sleep

Sleep always long to take my breath away,
But promises never to trouble any man's good rest,
A dreamland with vision faraway,
A giver and angel of a renewed breath,
But time may come; i need thee not,
Night lamps and whisperers are here,
Blessed companions for today's need,
Lift from my cloudy eyes your spells and tears,
So that, i may dine in works of good deeds,
Or should i swim to sleep?
without stroking in labor straight and deep?
Take me not with thee!
Until the night prayers are said to me!
