Liner Notes: 

Skirmish prompt: Sleep

Something I don’t get nearly enough of… I would love it if someone put this to music and would sing me to sleep!

Lyrics: 

V1
let time drift
let stress lift
invite calm
let stress lift
let time drift
feel your body
settle down

C
welcome sleep
welcome dreams
let sleep come
let dreams run

welcome sleep
welcome dreams
let sleep come
the day is done

V2
let thoughts go
let eyes close
embrace rest
let eyes close
let thoughts go
don’t worry about
what is next

C
welcome sleep
welcome dreams
let sleep come
let dreams run

welcome sleep
welcome dreams
let sleep come
the day is done

V3
let cares fade
let fears wane
receive peace
let fears wane
let cares fade
allow the stillness
to increase

C
welcome sleep
welcome dreams
let sleep come
let dreams run

welcome sleep
welcome dreams
let sleep come
the day is done

So calming!! This would make a perfect lullaby for overstressed adults. "don’t worry about/what is next" - wise words!

The words alone have a calming effect through their brevity and repetition and gentle exhortations; with the right peaceful music, I bet this could be wonderfully mediative and relaxing indeed!

Really nice use of the prompt, there is a meditative quality to this that I love a lot. It's got a little bit of a lullaby feel to it or something you'd listen to when you need to relax. I enjoyed this one a lot and even just reading it felt very calming, well done!

I feel myself relaxing as I read this. It's a sort of sleep meditation. I kind of feel that we should be hearing the sounds of the ocean as this is sung or intoned
