The Gift Of Repose

By Pradhyuman Madhavan

The greatest gift of all,
Winter, spring, summer, fall
Sweeter than a rose
the gift of repose

Indeed the greatest gift
the good gift of sleep
my spirits greatly lift
and my heart joyously leaps

The greatest gift of sleep
Blurs the harsh realities
wondrous worlds, gold in a heap
fantastic possibilities

The greatest gift of sleep
be winter spring summer or fall
is truly indeed
the greatest gift of all
