To sleep without dreams
without lies
without fear.

To finally, fully, fulfillingly
Rest.

Place aside the striving.
Place aside the pain.
Push and shove the unwilling
the foreboding
the worry
that comes from the future unknown.

Fight.
Struggle.
Duel until the last weary bone
it cracks
and the last match is gasped out.

Then fall and fall and fall without fear.
Knowing the unfathomable depth.
Knowing the catch,
and knowing the Hand, the Healer that
reaches out to comfort, hold, and rebuild.

Welcome to Pip!

Letting go in full trust of landing safely within God's love and compassion, is a wonderful experience, you are right.

To sleep well is the prize of those who are without fear, I agree.

I am grateful for dreams though, they are not all nightmares after all.

Enjoyed your first entry.

Love,
Margherita

Welcome!  Oh yes, that familiar dream of falling, falling, falling.  It's been years since I've dreamt it.

I appreciate your first post and pray you'll enjoy your time on these blue pages.

God bless,
  Rae

"Letting Go" you're right! Once we set aside all those unnecessary weights - then rest will   surely be assured - and with sweet dreams too.
