I sleep like a baby...

I sleep like a baby…

I sleep like a baby…
With a smile on my face reflecting
Happy dreams and idyllic landscapes.
The inner world is insulated from
The cruelty of the outer world.

The smile’s because of happy oblivion.
The smile’s there because I am removed from the world.
Blanketed in the warm idealistic dreams
Of happiness and content and laughter and peace
And smiles and colours.
The smile’s there because
I don’t need reason to smile…

The joy of progressing at tottering speed is enough.
The joy of living is enough.
The joy of wondering at the beauty of this world is enough.
The joy of experiencing this world is enough.
The joy of no-strings-attached affection
and unconditional love is enough.

I still sleep like a baby…
With a smile on my face…
Tough times have brought wrinkles
But the crinkles of laughter and smiles
Are not replaced by a frown…

But for how long??
