last thoughts


and so before i fall asleep

do i close my eyes

and dedicate myself to you

that as i simulate my death in sleep

truly denying truly dying

to my self-seeking centeredness

i commend my whole being

into your hands

into the hands that made it

trusting you

in my complete unconsciousness

to make me one with you

as i fully rest in you –


with only this last thought

this fervent prayer

before i give myself to you

that when i awake again

the first thing i wake up to again

be you waking me up again

to full awareness

of you
