Oyasuminasai (Good Night)

My pillow beckons
soft feather whispers
and dreams of places
I knew once before
Between my fragrant sheets
should I chance to find peace
and settle upon a cloud
of silent repose
I shall ponder my destiny
and the path that I tread
which leads naturally onward
begins tonight in my bed.
