Sleep, sleep; dive deep:
The Sea of undiscovered dreams appears.
Sleep, sleep; dig deep:
The underworld of hopes and fears.
Is it real or is it not?
Can I reach it? Better not!
Twists and turns; tunnels long.
A voice beyond: a siren’s song.
Eyes are heavy; legs are weak,
Can I find the thing I seek?
Waking now, it fades away.
Forget it in the light of day.
At sleep-fall it comes again,
Lures me in, lets go and then,
Moves beyond where I can go,
I cannot run; I am too slow.
Dreams torment me, draw me deep:
I get no rest in nightly sleep.
