I was made to be wide-eyed all the days of my life.

Is my soul asleep.

Found this one on the deep basement shelf of Von's
Is your soul asleep?

Is My Soul Asleep?
Is my soul asleep?
Have those beehives that work
in the night stopped? And the water-
wheel of thought, is it
going around now, cups
empty, carrying only shadows?
No, my soul is not asleep.
It is awake, wide awake.
It neither sleeps nor dreams, but watches,
its eyes wide open
far-off things, and listens
at the shores of the great silence.
Antonio Machado
