Sleep? "Cawdor shall sleep no more, for Glamis hath murdered sleep."
I wish I could but when I close my eyes, I see that plane hitting the tower and hear the cries of the wounded and the dieing in my mind. When exhaustion takes over, I dream and the dreams are worse than the reality.
"Sleep; that knits the raveled sleeve of care..."
I wish.

Try reading the words over and over until the crowd everything else out of your mind. I've only read them about 4 times and I'm tired.

flattop, thank you, so much! I am going to print this out and refer to it every time I get to feeling anxious and as though I am not doing enough or quickly enough.:-)

I LOVE that "dulcify!" Now, I know what I do when I play my duclimer. When people ask me what I am, I'll tell them I am a dulcifer!**BG**

I wanted to post the lyrics to a beautiful lully the Moddy Blues did, but I don't know the name and can't find it.

It starts out something like, "Close your eyes and go to sleep, Hmmm, Hmmmm, Hmmm, Hm...(those are supposed to be words.) It is a beautiful melody and driving me nuts that I cannot remember the words.

Anyway, sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite.

You're welcome kat. Perhaps we should read the Thesaurus more often.

Years ago I played a Moody Blues song similar to the one you mentioned. I hurt my brain trying to remember it. It had Ummms instead of Hummms and the chords went from E to C#m to A. The words that came back were like, 'The rain is on the roof, hurry high???????'

Om. Wrong myself. I'm surprised that Sorcha the song searcher didn't get this. She must be sleeping. Had a cup of Red Rose and looked for it.

The rain is on the roof
Hurry high butterfly
As clouds roll past my head
I know why the skys all cry
OM, OM, Heaven, OM

The Earth turns slowly round
Far away the distant sound
Is with us everyday
Can you hear what it say
OM, OM, Heaven, OM

The rain is on the roof
Hurry high butterfly
As clouds roll past my head
I know why the skys all cry
OM, OM, Heaven, OM

I saw OM, but it doesn't scan quite right for the tune I've got and I do remember some kind of lully words. Right, now, on a piano keyboard, the first few notes (someday I will learn abc):

G D A Fsharp G (middle)C E F E E D

See if that jogs any memories, please, everyone? I can do more if needed.

Thanks! I slept well until lower back pain hit!*bg*

We live in the world. We can't deny our grief. But the "senseless" inhumanity that we witnessed has a "sense" about it if we can become larger in our understanding as to why it happened. For this, we need to meditate, pray, internalize our collective grief and not overreact.

This horrible tragedy has a "meaning" if we can bring ourselves forward to grasp it.

The only solution through this web of horror is to understand. Then we can appropriately deal with it.

Googling your words with 'Moody Blues', it points to this song.

Nervous
(John Lodge)

Why I am so nervous
Please explain to me
Why I can't sleep
I close my eyes to shelter
In the dark I try to hide
If you leave me on my own
I'm worried I could lose my way

In my mind confusion
I see you everywhere
But we don't speak
I try so hard to touch you
But you're always out of reach
If you walked right by
Would I see in it your eye
Would you turn away

Seems to me
I've been a long time
On this road
Has there been a sign
Another way
And I've passed it by
I don't know what it is that drives me on
Gotta keep movin'
Gotta keep movin' on

Bring it on home
Let's bring it on home - your love
Bring it on home
Let's bring it on home your love
Bring it on home
Let's bring it on home your love
Down parallel lines
Don't question faith
Don't answer lies

Tell me why I'm nervous
Please explain to me
Why I can't sleep
Please explain to me
Why you're always out of reach
If the water ran dry
Would I see it in your eye
Would you walk away

It seems to me I've been a long time on this road
And I wonder why
Has there been a sign that points another way
And I've passed it by
I don't know what it is that drives me on
Gotta keep movin'
Gotta keep movin' on

Bring it on home
(straight lines before my eyes)
Let's bring it on home your love
Bring it on home
(straight lines before my eyes)
Let's bring it on home your love
Bring it on home
(straight lines before my eyes)
Let's bring it on home your love
Down parallel lines
Don't question faith

Don't answer lies
You know you gotta keep movin'
Bring it on home
(straight lines before my eyes)
Let's bring it on home your love
Bring it on home
(straight lines before my eyes)
Let's bring it on home your love

oH, JEEZ, I should have gone with my first instinct last night. I thought "Beatles" then, "No, Moddy Blues." Duh, it was the Beatles. Maybe we can use this one tonight:

Goodnight Lennon / McCartney (1968)

{Slow lullaby}

1. [G]Now it's [Bmi]time to [C]say goodnight,

[Bmi]Good [C]night, sleep [D7]tight.

[G]Now the [Bmi]sun turns [C] out his light,

[Bmi]Good [C]night, sleep [D7] tight

{Chorus:}

[Bmi]Dream sweet [Ami]dreams for [Bmi]me [Ami],

[G]Dream sweet [Ami]dreams for [G]you [Ami].

2. Close your eyes and I'll close mine, Goodnight, sleep tight

Now the moon begins to shine, Goodnight, sleep tight

{Chorus.}

{Middle:}

[G]Hm, m [Ami]m, [A]Hm, m [Dmi]m, [G]Hm, m, [C]m-m-m [D7]m.

3. Close your eyes and I'll close mine, Goodnight, sleep tight

Now the sun turns out his light, Goodnight, sleep tight

{Chorus.}
