sleep is gratitude

I thank Allah for sleep, as in sleep my heart calms
And my soul touch gardens and I swim away from thoughts
Of my city, I become the friend of this world
The soul of this city pales in the world of slumber
And I jump to a place where all prayers calm the ears
And I dance to the sight of hills, nobody owns or wills
In my dream, the soul of the city pales
And this world is a blunder and surprised
To new worlds were prayers make it still
