Lay your head on my chest and drift away
To a dreamless sleep where no shadows hold sway
That restful place with no earthly home
So hard to find with a mind set to roam
An hour or 2 with no burdens to shoulder
Shifted for now and held till it’s over
By ever willing hands that will never lose strength
When all they are asked is to help a friend
As you close your eyes and your breathing slows
Know that when you wake I will still not go
