"Te bene quiescere cupio..."
I'm afraid you interpreted this French text too much "on your own". No "licentia poetica" this time, dear!
Wouldn't be better to say "Bonam noctem tibi opto?"

Because we had to change your translation quite a lot, I'll accept it without rating, dear.
But, next time try to convey the source text more precisely, ok?
You sometimes can make your own interpretations while translating some text like poems or some proverbs, but the meaning have to be the same all the time. Can you see?

Of course, Aneta.
Thank you again.

Hm, but "Te bene quiescere cupio..." means sth quite different: "I want you have a good rest" and I'm afraid it doesn't convey THIS French version ABOVE. It is totally different, because "a rest" I can have even during a day... Am I wrong, Francky?

Ah ok! (I thought "cupio" would also have this "wishing" meaning). So you are right Aneta!
