So sleepy, watching Jorge doze before
The lure of bedtime takes my feverish brain
Away to dreams that make my heart soar
All doubts and fears go back to where they came.
In dreams, I do not dwell on failure, nor
Commitments—I find opportunities
New ways to reach goals I’ve been working toward--
New perspectives from a subconscious me.
I sleep, and am finally at peace
No longer frazzled. All is well
And he’s beside me, arms around me, all-
Protecting. What a miracle befell
This girl whose fears are vanquished by her bed
And Jorge, knight who out of shadows lead.
