As I Lay Sleeping

As I lay sleeping you are awake,

doing your daily deeds.

Sleeping Meadows, Whispered Winds

when all you hear are squeaks.


As I lay sleeping, eyes shut tight

your eyes are wide awake.

For gentle sounds, now hushed, and still

Caress my peaceful ears

With you the sun stays bright.


As I lay sleeping, weary bodies relax

Yet, busy your day, til late.

When once you’re home, you slink on down

upon your couch, and say


‘Now it’s me to lay asleep

and HA, for pity sake

Now it’s time for you to work,

and rest indeed I’ll take!’
