Do you want to sleep tonight? ~Adewumi Godwin
It’s lonely here.
There’s unfamiliar shadows.
And unknown voices.
I don’t want to sleep.
You can’t protect me from there.
Will you read to me?
Sing me a sweet melody?
Calm me from this anxiety?
I don’t want to sleep. ~J.A.A.G
Of course I will.
Stay up with you.
I’ll sing your strange shadows to dance.
I’ll read to you,
stories of past loves
before you found me.
You don’t have to sleep and even if you do
I’ll keep vigil for you. ~Adewumi Godwin
