Sleepless Sigh

 

That sigh you slept, that dwelt from dusk til morning

Tells me that your sleep is but one breath.

 

Even in dreams I feel your waking woes,

Held in uneasy sheets, in lost repose:

 

That life, kept in, keeps hold until our dawning.

Breathe out your wakefulness, and sleep in death.
