Where is sleep tonight,
like a lover out of sight.
I reach out my hand
to that other land,
Oh where is sleep tonight.

I toss and turn in my bed
Thinking of words left unsaid
Words I can’t say
in the brightness of day,
Oh where is sleep tonight.

A magical place in the night,
where my lover holds me tight.
Another world far away
Far from the cares of the day,
Oh where is sleep tonight.

Brett, hope Trevor is ok in the Lakes after hearing on the news about the awful weather conditions there.
Lovely poem, the emotion comes through.

I would like to be in that crevice. Or should I say crevasse? Where it be?

Great poem! I'm asking "where is sleep tonight" a lot these days.
