  • Have you ever had the feeling,
    As you lay down for a sleep,
    Of fading, slowly fading
    Into an everlasting deep?
    A quiet, pleasant, comfort
    Not frightening in the least,
    But a fading, slowly fading
    As though life for you had ceased.
    The thought was not unpleasant,
    As it passed across the bar,
    It made me know how sweet it'd be
    Just to quietly . . . be . . . no . . . more.
