Our Sleep is Not as Deep

By William Martin

From The Sage’s Tao te Ching

We are traveling more lightly now

And our sleep is not as deep

As in our youth.

Restless thoughts stir the curtains

By the window of our mind.


It brings a blessed gift

Of extra time set aside for the contemplation

We’ve  been desiring.

A time for reading a book of quiet inspiration

Or whispering a phrase of blessing

In rhythm with our blessing

All the sleep we need

Will be given us.


Don’t be bothered by the restlessness.

Your soul is waking up

And naturally disturbs your mind.

Softly fold back the covers

And tiptoe to a quiet place

And sit contentedly

Listening to your soul.
