Liam McGinley – Sleep



There is a good reason

Why the earth is dark at night

It reminds us that we are awake but

Are never far from sleep –

The deep sleep of everlasting life

If we could but grasp a feather from the earth

And take it with us where we go

Then we could say that we had packed

ready for the journey.
