Prayer - To Sleep

Sleep, sweet Sleep-
We perform our nightly rituals,
Open up the altar of our bed,
Hoping that as we enter into it,
we can enter into Oneness with you.

You, Sleep, truly rejuvenate our bodies.
You, Sleep, reweave the fabric of our minds.
Without you
we are lost in despair and dreamless psychosis.

May you come upon us at the time of our bedding.
May you remain with us all the night long.
May you deepen in us
so that your renewing powers leave us
fresh and smiling at morning sun and
alert throughout the day.

We praise you, Sleep.
We give thanks for all you give us.
Thank you.
Thank you, Sleep.
