Ah, to sleep and never wake
This is a journey I long to take
Is it really too much to ask,
Is it such a monumental task?
How dare you force me into life,
this prison of pain and endless strife
Tuck me in, then go away
Don’t bother to wake me, come the day
“Oh, to sleep, perchance to”… sleep!
No dreams are needed to keep
me distracted and confused
Just blissful repose with no ado
Waking life is not for me
Nonexistence is what I need
Until forever and again
Until the cosmic time clock ends.
