Read introduction

'Soon, I’ll Sleep Again' dates from 2017, beginning life as a song which evolved by degrees into the versified piece featured below, and which accurately reflected my state of mind, even while my mood ultimately lifted.

Soon, I'll Sleep Again

Def._2015_36_by Carl Halling12 Jul 2017

Soon, I’ll sleep again,
I will feel no pain,

For a little time,
Peace will be all mine

My mind will seek
Freedom from the past,

I’ll be carefree,
Although it will not last,

Soon, I’ll sleep again,
I will feel no pain.
