Just Laying Down

By M. Jay Mansfield

I lay down to sleep with my weapons
The last good night my friends....
oh yes we had a great run
my blessed fiends

I am always more comfortable with them
they always come to life when I am near
they always respond to my every touch
each and everyone I hold dear

Cold steel blade that slides thru my abdomen
you always loved me the best
My bow and I…we killed many vermin
my staff, in battle and now in rest

You that I trust….
now I lay down with you
and we both finally can rust
My toys …… lay down ……
