Sleep tight

By 7th June 2010December 9th, 2019No Comments

From the darkest depths of night,
Sleepless, but tired, try as you might,
From the darkest depths of your mind,
You look, but Oblivion you will not find,
Sometimes I am awake, near through the night.

Deeply you look into your soul,
A few hours, that is your goal,
Deeply you think and ponder,
Tired during the day, I shouldn’t Wonder,
Sometimes I can feel the first rays of light,

Many things I consider,
All the lost sleep, I am not bitter,
Many things I have felt about us and ours,
The extra time, used, productive hours,
Sometimes I can see the birds take flight,

What else can I think,
I long to fall into sleep, just to sink,
What else would one do,
I am an insomniac, how about you?
Sometimes dawns chorus ends my night.
