Everyone looks younger when they’re sleeping
When pleasant dreams settle over daytime woes
Like sunshine drying rain-soaked grass
As heavy eyelids search for peace and flutter closed
And daily worries and their wrinkles fall away
Everyone looks younger when they’re sleeping
When darkness overcomes the fear of night
No child or man can run or hide
From that gentle dimming of the light
As the sky falls from rosy gold to dripping black
Everyone looks younger when they’re sleeping
But everyone looks older when they’re dead

One thought on “Younger

  1. I share your sentiments.

    When we sleep, we are with God and His presence even in our dream shines through and makes us beautiful. Test this out…gaze at a sleeping person, even one whom you don’t particulary like…you’ll like them a little more. Peace, Eric
