The endless sleep

If I saw the world
through the eyes of a child
how big and great it would seem
and how slowly the days
and months would go by
Christmas would seem forever away.

If I saw the world
through the eyes of the aged
how tired life would seem
having traveled a lifetime of looking
the days speeding one upon another
would I wish to close them forever
and greet the endless sleep?
