Good night, sleep well beloved, when the last slow dusk has fallen, and your steps no more make music on the empty upper floor and day is fully passed.
We who so lightly let you go alone, evening by evening, from our trustful sight into the mystery of sleep's unknown.
We need not fear, tonight Death is so gentle, dark will break to dawn, Love will be safe until the morning light.
Sleep well, good night. Nancy Byrd Turner
