Request of Morpheus

I want you so, oh Morpheus, to come to me tonight
I need peace and quiet, and a silent, non-dream flight
into a warm, calming place of beautiful, serene abode,
take me please oh Morpheus, till morning do me hold.

I beseech thee, sweet Morpheus, to hold my dreams away,
for theyíve left me so uneasy, held me in darknessí sway
between the dreaming and reality every single night,
oh I beg of you, dear Morpheus, take away all dreams in sight.

I desire tonight, oh Morpheus, some blessed hours of peace,
hold me soft, hold me warm, I beg on bended knees,
for Iíve said my prayers, oh please, and for now I yearn
for blessed release from my dreams, oh please do turn

my night of repose into one of quiet, not to toss or turn about,
so in the morning Iíll wake well, not feel as if Iíd shout
to heaven to hear oh how, my nerves have been so frayed
oh Morpheus, youíll never know, just how to you Iíve prayed.

So hear me now, hear me true, know Iím facing fact
if I donít sleep sound tonight, heaven knows how Iíll act;
for thereíve been signs that Iíll know not what it is to do,
except, sweet Morpheus, if not I sleep, Iíll come after you.

I like this poem- except for one thing- (At the risk of sounding stupid)- who is Morpheous?

Denise, I slept somewhat better, but the dreams were still there...

Sys, thanks for reading, Morpheus is the god of dreams...from Greek mythology...and he didn't listen...

Watcher, thanks for reading, sorry you have the same problem...

Pepper, glad to know you're smiling today!
