The goddess of sleep and dreams
Has beguiled me of you!
She has robbed me of you completely.
She forbids me my slumber
And I'm deprived of your face.
For it is only in my dreams
When it is dark and you're not near,
That I find solace in your arms
And your voice hinders my fear.
This figment of you soothes my mind,
But even this I'm lacking.
As I lay here now parted from
This sweet sleep that has you enchanted,
Lost in a land of bliss,
But not as seldom of a dwelling
For the unpleasant and the haunting.
I am forced to wait
Until she deems me able
To dismiss all things mundane.
So she may fill my lungs
With deep, steadfast breaths
And I slowly slip away.
