I Can Hold You                                  


I can hold you.

Close your eyes

fold your mind.

I can hold you.


Beyond the darkened window

the winds are loose

watching and waiting

for your eyelids to close.


Are you frightened of sleeping,

of going on a journey

over strange and endless deserts

in the flow of the wind?


I can hold you.

Close your eyes

fold your mind.

I can hold you.


Beyond the darkened window

the stars uncurl

watching and waiting

for your eyelids to fall.


Are you frightened of sleeping,

of falling through the darkness

as you tumble from the planet

at the call of the stars?


I can hold you.

Close your eyes

fold your mind.

I can hold you.
