will you wake me?

if i lay my head down
for a while
and fall into a dream
will you wake me
when the
fighting is over?

i am so weary
of all this
anger and hate
i just want to sleep

will you wake me
when the 
war is over?

i had no idea
i was coming here
for this
if  I had,
i would not have come

and so i will rest
my tired body
and dream
of distant shores
and brilliant stars
and please wake me
when
the new dawn comes.
The Seagull and the Sky
