A Peaceful Slumber – Sohani Gupte 10 C

 

 

A Peaceful Slumber

I sometimes wish,

to remain in this void,

filled with peace and tranquility.

 

The dark sky forming a blanket over my eyes,

luring me to sleep like a baby.

 

The sweet chirp of the nightingale,

making me devoid of all my worries,

hiding me away like a shy bride behind a long and dark veil.

 

The gentle roar of wind,

illuminating the clouds,

making me feel like

there’s nobody around.

 

The small blades of grass,

acting as a mattress

providing me comfort,

away from all my distresses.

 

The moon smiling down,

with its bright light,

giving me guidance

throughout my slumber in the night.

 

 

I sometimes wish,

to remain in this beautiful serendipity,

this oblivion feeling,

embracing me completely.

 

Falling asleep, laying there,

a small smile on my face,

I sometimes wish to remain there,

feeling a sense of eternal bliss.
