When I Cannot Sleep

When I cannot sleep,
should I count some sheep
or look beyond
and go to the Shepherd?

Should I take warm milk,
crawl in sheets of silk
or look beyond
and go to the King.

For He has promised:
“I will give sleep
to my beloved,
deep and sweet.

I know your sorrows,
give them to me.
And you will find:
You will sleep.”
