Poetry- Nights Trip

The night is calm

Eyes have closed

Hearts beat steady

As minds swirl unknown.

Dreams are emerging

Or nightmares ensue

Of bitter reminders

Or hopes anew..

The toss and turn begins

Pleasant joy abounds

Or trembling it is

Fear within and around

We play in awesome wonder

Or run deathly afraid

Wishing eyes would open

Or hoping here we’d stay..

Midnight strikes

So does the bell

In heavenly dreams

Or nightmares hell..

The night turns heavy

As anxiety rolls in

Mindful rest unsteady

Dreams we seek begin..

Whether filled with elation

Or rattled with fright

This is the journey in rest

Our minds take at night..
