Sing me to sleep

the night is long
And the clock ticks in dry tones
winds heave across the valley
and trees roar through the night

like a lullaby,
winds pull me into a deep sleep
blowing softly from distance
singing into my ears
the only song I’ll ever hear

they keep me company for as long as I need
and expect nothing but keen ears
I think they enjoyed putting me to sleep
I know I enjoyed their company
on those long nights.
