In the book of God's dreams, page xx

In the book of God's dreams, page xx
A quarrel and a discord came upon me
And I laboured to establish peace in my heart
And to leave any foul pool
The grains of sand on this page covered the transparent glass
The sight was enclosed and the book of dreams
Was sealed-in against me for a while

Today I utter my wishes
Before the one who is entirely light
For the health of body and spirit and relief
And since I requested, it has been opened for me
