Destress Session

Come rest your eyes.
Unwind you sighs.
Relax, like that.
Yes, just like that.

It starts to go
as you let go.

And just like that,
uncurl your toes.
Your fingers next.
Relieve your back.

Like that: soothing,
letting go.

Breathe deeply, in,
within. That's it.
A calmness comes.
Breathe deep again.

It's almost gone,
the stress: it goes.

Lighter, softer,
kinder, yet:
you're getting there,
and just like that

no worries now.
Let all things be.

Another breath.

You're free.
