Into Sleep.



The sounds slides silently,

Slides through my ears to my soul.

Peace comes upon me

And silence pervades my body.

The sound so profound

Slips serenity within my mind,

Serenity within my body,

And lifts My Spirit to state of Euphoria,

A place where peace and love

Send me into sibilant, sorrowless sleep.

    Super write and what a great piece of music to accompany it - or is it the other way round? Really enjoyed this and must return to it when I have more time.

    • Goldfinch60

      Thank you Michael. I often play this in the evening sitting in the almost dark with a good malt in my glass - heaven can surely get no better than that.

      • Michael Edwards

        It does get better: when the malt's in the mouth 🙂
