Turn the lights low with a flick.
Shut my mind off with a click.
Pull the shades down with a snap.
Door left open just a crack.
Open window so breeze can rush
Across this night that’s under hush.
Quiet my soul and rest my brain;
Let the sludge run down the drain,
Of garbage I’ve picked up today,
While I’ve worked and while I’ve played.
Under covers with peaceful sleep
So I can dream in waters deep.
