I have learned sleep undreaming of the past.
I feel my fear, in what I dare not know.
Dare I embrace my naked self at last ?

Nothing endures I cannot yet outlast.
Guilt fades by going where it will not show.
I have learned sleep undreaming of the past.

I wish a time the Mind remembered all,
A place in me to come to unafraid
And so embrace my naked self at last.

What is this shame at which I stand appalled
So dark in me, what bed of Truth unmade
I’ve learned to sleep undreaming of the past ?

I do not want this shadow over all.
I do not want eclipsing by this shade.
Let me dare all, embrace my naked self at last.

I live to learn, knowing the learning may be vast,
But I want a Truth, I want the knowing that I know.
I have learned sleep undreaming of the past :
Dare I embrace my naked self at last ?
