    Sleep

      So tense, so restless. Holding yourself abey. Holding precious memories near. Defenseless, noone will harm you. Noone can take what is yours. I saw you sleeping, defensive and protective.
    I just wanted to whisper to you in your sleep, we're here, we're near, we love you, they love you. Arms against your chest and creasing in your face.
         Shhh, sleep... They love you, you are their hero. The heartache I see makes my heart bleed. To be so far away and see so vividly, holding memories so tight to your chest.
    I saw you sleeping, defensive and protective. I want to whisper to you in your sleep, it will be okay. They are yours to keep noone will harm you. They know your love.. I read your body and breathe when I see you relax... Shhh, sleep..

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
