As I Sleep

As I sleep

Now I lay me down to sleep
With this pillow my fears to keep
And as the tears that I cry
May the morning sun make them dry

As my fears are washed away
May this morning start a new day
As I go with chin held high
As I watch movement in the sky

As the day goes slowly by
May I have no more reasons to cry
But then night time come to call
It's then I start not to feel so tall

So as I lay me down to sleep
It's tears I count not the sheep
As each tear runs down my face
I toss and turn as I lose this race

So each night as the tears come forth
I fight them back for all it's worth
No one knows and no one cares
About all the burdens that one bares

But in the morning I'll be free
With a big smile for all to see
Because one night they'll be wiped by a hand
And they'll disappear like grains of sand
