I Am So So Tired All I Want To Do Is Sleep

Pleasant Dreams My Love

Your eyes were shutting as you talked

I watched your head bob up and down

At the end of each sentence

Pushing to get a few more things done

Slowly you made your way to the bed

Time to rejuvenate the body

Giving your mind a well deserved rest

Beautiful thoughts of you relaxing in the Aruba sun

Catching a light breeze that tickles your nose

I watch as you rub it once than again

Then sneeze

Never waking up during the whole time

The sunlight giving you that golden brown tan you have been looking for

In no hurry

I watch as you reach for your favorite cup

Filled with cold refreshing water

Drinking it slow watching all your worries disappear

I have to add you are someone very special

Thanks to you I have time to write every day

You pick up where I leave off

Pitching in wherever you can

Making lunch where you know I wouldn't think to eat

So wrapped up in a story

I can't seem to pry myself away

One more line as I beg to finish before we sit down to eat

As I go in to check on you

Your head tucked deep into the pillow

Our cat comforting you by lying by your side

I put the finishing touches

By walking over to you and giving you a soft kiss

Watching your eye lids flutter

I say I love you honey

So my words may echo in your head endless as time

Gypsy Rose Lee Sleep is definitely my favorite of all things to do. I am so lucky how many people get five or more hours a day doing what they love. Thank you for your kind thoughts as well. You have commented on so many of my stories and poems. You have made many of my days very happy . A cold day here and what a great day to snuggle and sleep.
