Use our good night poems to wish others a good sleep. Words that express thoughts and wishes for a good night.
For some night is a welcome relief from the stress of the day and for others night is dreaded. A good night's sleep is one of the
best ways to feel good about the coming day. No matter what has happened during the day, let it go at night - you can't change it tonight - so
put it out of your mind and sleep well! We hope these poems are ones that you share!
The day is over you've done your best
Now is the time for you to rest
You can't change the events of the day
You can't change the things others say
Tomorrow is an opportunity to begin
New opportunities to take in
A good night sleep will help you decide
The best opportunities to provide
Sleep well this night
Turn out the lights
Thank God for the day
And find sleep will be on the way.
May the God of heaven's vault bless you
May the God of shimmering moonlight love you
May the God of sparkling stars lead you
May the God of haunting songs cheer you.
May the God of strange shadows calm your nerves
May the God of straight roads bring you home
May God be watching from a familiar window
And hand in hand with Him may you wait for dawn
Good Night, may God bless you this night
Good Night Poet: Max Ehrmann
Good night, thou sweet, old world, good night;
Enfold me in the gentle light
Of other days, when gleams
Of dewy meadows held my dreams;
And quiet walks, as day sank low,
Dispelled each touch of woe.
Let me forget these joys be gone,
But feel them coming on
From out the past, with laughter's cries
And dream-enamored skies
Of old. One hand let me hold tight.
Good night, thou sweet, old world, good night.
Time, when the world with its weary cares and insidious snares,
With its smiles and frowns, and ups and downs,
With its harsh words cold, and stares so bold,
With its many a mansion, and lovers of fashion,
With its hovels and huts, and scornful cuts,
With its few generous hands, to reach where Worth stands,
With its tired brains, its losses and gains,
With its aching hearts, its cruel darts,
With its steam of prosperity, its wheels of adversity,
Time, when the weary world, by Fate's finger twirled,
Bars its factory door for the rich and the poor,
From the Squire to the Clerk, all rest from their work,
And the world is shut in by a door whose hinges are light,
And the name of this door is the beautiful Night.
Poet: Percy Bysshk Shell
Good-night? No, love! the night is ill
Which severs those it should unite;
Let us remain together still,
Then it will be good night.
How were the night without thee good,
Though thy sweet wishes wing its flight?
Be it not said, thought, understood, -
Then it will be good night.
The hearts that on each other beat
From evening close to morning light
Have nights as good as they are sweet,
But never say "Good-night."
Poet: Kate Summers
Wishing you a peaceful sleep
From you, we will hear not a peep
Tired from a hard day's work
Sleep should come without a shirk.
May you have sweet dreams tonight
And in the morning awake so bright
May the angels watch over you
Keep you safe until the morning dew.
Tomorrow is a brand new day
But tonight sleep is needed I must say
Love you today but tomorrow more
Life has much for you in-store.
The night has become so quiet now
Close your eyes and take a bow
You did your best the day is done
Awake in the morning with the sun.
But At Night
Poet: Sam Fickinsen
Each day I wish you a good day
But at night I must say
I love you see you in the morn
And let you know you I adore
Each day with you is a special one
We always laugh and have some fun
But night brings and end to the day
It brings us peace in every way.
So as we lay down our heads
And cover up all snug in bed
I wish you a good night
And can't wait to see you at first light.
Poet: Theodore W. Higginsworth
A wish for a good night
And a sleep that is just right.
Pray that tomorrow you will awake
And it will be a day you can make
One more step to make dreams come true
And you will find success in all you do!
A Ma Future
by Edwin Arnold
Where waitest thou.
Lady I am to love? Thou comest not,
Thou knowest of my sad and lonely lot —
I looked for thee ere now.
It is the May,
And each sweet sister soul hath found its brother;
Only we two seek fondly each the other,
And, seeking, still delay.
Where art thou, sweet?
I long for thee as thirsty lips for streams;
Oh, gentle promised angel of my dreams.
Why do we never meet?
Thou art as I —
Thy soul doth wait for mine, as mine for thee:
We cannot live apart — must meeting be
Never before we die?
Dear soul, not so!
For time doth keep for us some happy years,
And God hath portioned us our smiles and tears;
Thou knowest, and I know.
Yes, we shall meet;
And therefore let our searching be the stronger;
Dark ways of life shall not divide us longer,
Nor doubt, nor danger, sweet.
Therefore I bear
This winter-tide as bravely as I may,
Patiently waiting for the bright spring day
That Cometh with thee, dear.
'Tis the May light
That crimsons all the quiet college gloom;
May it shine softly in thy sleeping-room —
And so, dear wife, good-night!
By Norma Beard
The sky is lit with a million stars,
The moon is shining bright -
The best part of the glorious day
Is when it turns to night.
The river's water ripples soft
In the pale moonlight:
It seems to sing a happy song,
A song of great delight.
The leaves on the trees are dancing
To a fairy tune;
They whirl around, twirl around,
And seem to touch the moon.
And then the shadowy figures
Of a hundred cherry trees
Are lifting their arms up to the sky
And are laughing in the breeze.
Of course the bird
On its outspread wing
Homeward safely flies -
And to think I can see it all
With my own two eyes.
Good Night Poet Unknown
Sleep sweetly in this quiet room,
O thou, whoe'er thou art,
And let no mournful yesterdays
Disturb thy peaceful heart.
Nor let tomorrow scare thy rest
With thoughts of coming ill;
Thy Maker is thy changeless friend,
His love surrounds thee still.
Forget thyself and all the world;
Put out each feverish light.
The stars are watching overhead.
Sleep sweetly then. Good night.
