Let me sleep
Let me sleep, let me close my eyes and drift away
Let my troubles and my pains be locked away in my tomb
Let me rest my head on soft feathered pillows
Let me sleep and never be awoken again.
Let me sleep, let only my beautiful angels come to collect me
Let me wake in the clear sunlight of Paradise
Let me drift away to a happy peaceful place
No more pain, sadness, emptiness and neglect
Let me sleep and never wake up.
Let my angels whisper to me, "Sleep my child
Sleep as we sing our lullaby to you and take you away"
Let them plant fresh flowers on my final resting place
Let the fresh scent of the flowers take away the stench of my life
Let me fly so high and far away, never to be touched by pain again
Let me sleep, let me drift far away, never to return.
